Touchstone adds wells into Ortoire and CO-1 blocks

Touchstone Exploration Inc. has drilled wells into Ortoire and CO-1 blocks onshore Trinidad and Tobago and expects to test wells in Cascadura field later in the year.

Cascadura-3ST1 delineation well was spudded on Mar. 4, 2024, from the Cascadura C surface location. It reached a total depth of 8,252 ft on Mar. 29, 2024. A high-pressure gas kick was encountered at a depth of about 7,500 ft which resulted in wellbore instability issues and a portion of the wellbore was redrilled via a sidetrack.

Drilling samples and openhole wireline logs indicated over 900 ft of sand in the targeted Herrera formation with over 230 ft of net hydrocarbon pay. The top of the key Herrera formation was detected at a measured depth of 6,852 ft, with sand and shows observed throughout the section to the total depth of the well. The well has been cased for future production.

Touchstone Exploration Inc (LON:TXP) is a Canadian-based, international upstream oil and gas company currently active in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Primera Oil and Gas is the Trinidadian subsidiary of Touchstone.
