For the production unit in Boranda -2 ST it is known that it is considered an "independent body found in Boranda-1 producing a well". This, they add, is approximately one thousand feet.
At present, Ecopetrol owns 50% of the stake in the block and the remaining 50% is owned by Parex, the operator.
According to Alberto Consuegra, Executive Vice President of EcoPetrol, "this finding is part of the Reserve Enhancement Strategy, which includes as one of its guidelines the exploration of areas near production fields."
