First, the rig is being moved to the ELM-1004 well (drilled and suspended in May) where it will spend between two and three weeks of testing.
It will subsequently move on test the other three new wells drilled during the 2018 campaign.
The order of the test programme has yet to be determined because the test design for the most recent well, EMS-1001, which was said to have encountered a potentially significant oil column, has yet to be completed.
Whilst the rig is under contract, the company is considering opening up and recompleting existing wells, at both the Estancia La Maggie are of Fracción C and the Fracción D asset.
“The company will update shareholders with progress on both the testing and workover activities as the programme advances,” Echo said in a statement.
