Comments

In March 2022, the average daily production from fields in Argentina and Colombia was 3,367 barrels of oil equivalents per day (boepd), compared with 3,254 boepd in February 2022.

Comparing operated daily average production in March with the previous month, there is a slight increase of 112 boepd mainly explained by the activity in Argentina, especially in the Santa Cruz (SC) operation.

In Argentina, the SC output production had an increase in their operated production mainly explained by some optimization in the maintenance of the surface equipment still being undertaken since the beginning of this year. Interoil is profiting of the long daylight hours of the austral summer to undertake surface treatment debottlenecking especially on the gas infrastructure. This maintenance programme is expected to last, at least, until the end of the Autumn season in the southern hemisphere.

In Mata Magallanes Oeste (MMO), Interoil is expecting the environmental approvals from local authorities to be confirmed in the coming weeks.

In Colombia, oil and gas production had an expected decrease in their production output mainly explained by the natural depletion of the field and some wells being off-line due to programmed maintenance work on the surface oil treatment system.

In the Llanos area, oil production in Vikingo continues its natural flowing depletion rate. The planned exploration campaign in the Altair and LLA-47 blocks remains on hold and pending approval from authorities.
