InterOil's success continues in Peru

InterOil's second well in the new area in the Southern part of Block III (Mirador) is completed. The two wells produce 1'120 bopd net to the company. A third and fourth well will be spudded early August using two rigs simultaneously.
 
The second well encountered the oil reservoir deeper than in the first exploration well, possibly in a seperate structure, judging by the very high reservoir pressures.
 
The investment in this well is approximately USD 1.2 mill. and give a payback in less than 6 month at todays oil prices.
 
"We believe that this area contain significant new reserves, and we will continue drilling further to the west", says Nils N. Trulsvik, CEO of InterOil E&P ASA.
