Gran Tierra Energy Inc., a company focused on oil exploration and production in South America, provided updates for its appraisal drilling in Colombia.

Chaza Block:
Gran Tierra Energy completed initial testing of Moqueta-8 by collecting reservoir data and fluid samples using a hydraulic jet pump from the Caballos formation, along with the T Sandstone and U Sandstone from the Villeta formations. The Caballos formation consisted of 209 feet TVD gross reservoir or 104 feet TVD net reservoir thickness. It was perforated and tested from 5,361 feet to 5,538 feet MD for 57 hours at a rate of 651 barrels of oil per day ("BOPD") of 28.2° API oil with a 0.4% water cut. The T Sandstone formation consisted of 85 feet TVD gross reservoir or 72 feet TVD of net reservoir thickness. It was perforated and tested from 5,153 feet to 5,256 feet MD for 16.4 hours at a rate of 925 BOPD of 27.0° API oil and a stabilized 0.4% water cut. The U Sandstone formation consisted of 44 feet TVD gross reservoir or 32 feet TVD net reservoir thickness. It was perforated and tested from 4,866 feet to 4,911 feet MD for 24 hours at a rate of 24 BOPD of 16.3° API oil with a 0.4% water cut. This well is being completed as a production well.

Moqueta-9, the next well in the appraisal program to further define the reserve potential of the field, was spud on January 20, 2013 and is targeting the northern portion of the Moqueta field. Initial results are expected in late February.
