CERP has updated the market with regard to its work with Predator on the CO2 pilot project on the Innis-Trinity IPSC. Workover operations have now been successfully completed to survey downhole the AT-4 and AT-13 wells in preparation for future CO2 injection and enhanced oil production.
Predator has confirmed to Columbus that based on the AT-13 survey results the Herrera #2 Sand has been selected as being accessible for CO2 enhanced recovery operations. This is a significant step, particularly for Predator as they forge forward on the project but also for CERP who may use any proceeds from a sale, should this happen to add to their SW Penisula programme.
