CALGARY, AB, Oct. 11, 2023 /CNW/ - Alvopetro Energy Ltd. (TSXV: ALV) (OTCQX: ALVOF) is pleased to announce that we have now completed drilling the 183-A3 well on our 100% owned Murucututu natural gas field. Based on open-hole logs, the well encountered potential net natural gas pay across two separate formations totaling 127.7 metres, with an average porosity of 10.3%.

President and CEO, Corey C. Ruttan commented:

"The results from our uphole 183-A3 Caruaçu exploration target has significantly exceeded our pre-drill expectations and has the potential to open up a large stacked multi-zone development opportunity in further support of our longer-term natural gas growth objectives."

The 183-A3 well was drilled to a total measured depth ("MD") of 3,540 metres. Based on open-hole logs, the well encountered potential net natural gas pay in both the Caruaçu Member of the Maracangalha Formation and the Gomo Member of the Candeias Formation, with an aggregate 127.7 metres total vertical depth ("TVD") of potential natural gas pay, using a 6% porosity cut-off, 50% Vshale cut-off and 50% water saturation cutoff.

Caruaçu Exploration Target

In the Caruaçu Member, a total of 116.1 metres TVD of potential net natural gas pay was encountered between 2,542 metres and 3,062 metres, at an average 38.5% water saturation and an average porosity of 10.4%. Alvopetro currently has no reserves or resources assigned to this Target.

Candeias Formation

In the Gomo Member of the Candeias Formation, a total of 11.6 metres TVD of potential net natural gas pay was encountered between 3,085 metres and 3,270 metres, at an average water saturation of 30.6% and an average porosity of 9.1%. Our Proved reserves for this development well had estimated 12.5 meters of net natural gas pay with porosity of 11.0% and 17% water saturation.

Based on these drilling results, subject to regulatory approvals and equipment availability, we plan to complete the well and put it on production directly to the adjacent field production facility.

Testing and Well Results. Data obtained from the 183-A3 well identified in this press release, including hydrocarbon shows, open-hole logging, net pay and porosities should be considered to be preliminary until testing, detailed analysis and interpretation has been completed. Hydrocarbon shows can be seen during the drilling of a well in numerous circumstances and do not necessarily indicate a commercial discovery or the presence of commercial hydrocarbons in a well. There is no representation by Alvopetro that the data relating to the 183-A3 well contained in this press release is necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate recovery. The reader is cautioned not to unduly rely on such data as such data may not be indicative of future performance of the well or of expected production or operational results for Alvopetro in the future.

Cautionary statements regarding the filing of a Notice of Discovery. We have submitted a Notice of Discovery of Hydrocarbons to the Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis (the "ANP") with respect to the 183-A3 well. All operators in Brazil are required to inform the ANP, through the filing of a Notice of Discovery, of potential hydrocarbon discoveries. A Notice of Discovery is required to be filed with the ANP based on hydrocarbon indications in cuttings, mud logging or by gas detector, in combination with wire-line logging. Based on the results of open-hole logs, we have filed a Notice of Discovery relating to our 183-A3 well. These routine notifications to the ANP are not necessarily indicative of commercial hydrocarbons, potential production, recovery or reserves.
