Anadarko finds gas in ultra-deep waters offshore Colombia

Anadarko finds gas in ultra-deep waters offshore Colombia: "Anadarko Petroleum's Kronos-1 well has proved the presence of hydrocarbons in the ultra-deep waters of the Colombian south Caribbean area, Ecopetrol, a partner in the well, said. This discovery proves the geological model proposed for an unexplored area with high hydrocarbon potential, the Bogotá, Colombia-based company said Tuesday. Kronos-1 is located in Fuerte Sur Block, 53 km offshore Colombia, where Anadarko, the operator, and Ecopetrol each hold a 50% interest. According to operator's quarterly operations report, after drilling at a water depth of 1,584 m, the well reached a total depth of 3,720 m and encountered a net pay thickness between 40 m and 70 m of gas bearing sandstones."
