DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. WIRE SERVICES
Calgary, Alberta (FSCwire) - Petrodorado Energy Ltd. (“Petrodorado” or the “Company”) (TSXV-PDQ) announces the spud of the Loto-2 well on the CPO-5 Block in Colombia.
The Company is pleased to announce the spud of the Loto-2 well on the CPO-5 Block, a joint venture asset of ONGC Videsh Ltd. and Amerisur Resources PLC (“Amerisur”). The well is expected to take approximately 20 days to drill to a total depth of 10,321 feet, with logging and testing to be performed thereafter.
The Company retains a 2.5% gross overriding royalty on Amerisur’s 30% working interest in the CPO-5 Block as a result of the divestiture of Petrodorado’s participating interest in the CPO-5 Block by way of the transaction with Amerisur as previously announced on June 29, 2015. Amerisur has strong financial capacity and a successful track record in Colombia. The Company believes that Amerisur has the ability and resources to bring success to the CPO-5 Block, from which Petrodorado shareholders will benefit through the retained royalty.
