CALGARY, AB, May 4, 2023 /CNW/ - Alvopetro Energy Ltd. (TSXV: ALV) (OTCQX: ALVOF) announces April 2023 average sales volumes and an operational update and timing for release of our Q1 2023 results and earnings call.

April 2023 Sales Volumes

April sales volumes averaged 1,972 boepd, including natural gas sales of 11.3 MMcfpd and associated natural gas liquids sales from condensate of 84 bopd, based on field estimates. Sales volumes in April declined from our average Q1 2023 of 2,767 boepd. April sales volumes were lower due to reduced demand during the month from Bahiagás as well as higher nominated volumes from our partner at the Caburé unit. We anticipate May sales volumes to continue at rates similar to average volumes in April. Future sales volumes will be dependent on available Caburé unit production, production additions from our Murucututu field with the development work planned this year and overall demand from Bahiagás.

Operational Update

In March, we commenced stimulation operations at our 197(1) well on our Murucututu natural gas field. While operations have progressed slower than initially scheduled, we have now successfully stimulated three of four planned intervals at the well, injecting a total of 89 tonnes of sand into the formation. Stimulation of the final interval is expected to be completed shortly and we expect the well to be on production this month. Following completion of stimulation operations, we plan to drill two Murucututu fit-for-purpose development wells in the second half of 2023.

On our Bom Lugar field, we spud our first development well (BL-06) on April 30th and drilling is underway. The BL-06 well is targeting the Caruaçu Formation with additional potential in the deeper Gomo and Agua Grande Formations. We expect drilling to be completed late in the second quarter.

BOE Disclosure
. The term barrels of oil equivalent ("boe") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet per barrel (6Mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. All boe conversions in this news release are derived from converting gas to oil in the ratio mix of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil.
