Drilling, Workover and Production
Since 2006, the drilling and workover operations we have performed have successfully maintained the production in our blocks despite the length of time exploited and their consequent classification as mature fields.
The fields inside the Tarapoa block are developed in compliance with high standards; the crude oil produced is transported to Lago Agrio and then shipped through the OCP and/or SOTE to the coast at Esmeraldas, there joined by the production from Blocks 14 and 17.
With the aim of optimizing oil production, advanced technological projects are in progress, such as the drilling of horizontal wells, dual completions (i.e. two producing zones), downhole water separation, water control using relative permeability modifiers, and water reinjection for reservoir pressure maintenance, among others.
