 BP COMPLETES TESTING OF COLOMBIAN WELL
 LONDON, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- BP today announced that it had


completed testing at its Buenos Aires-1 well in the Cusiana field in Colombia.
 The Barco formation flowed a total of 1,539 barrels a day of oil (25-27 degrees API) and 1.4 million cubic feet of gas from two intervals at depths between 15,030 and 15,120 feet.
 The Mirador formation flowed a total of 4,340 barrels a day of oil (33-36 degrees API) and 8.1 million cubic feet of gas from two intervals at depths between 14,325 and 14,580 feet, and 1,120 barrels a day of condensate (41 degrees API) and 6.5 million cubic feet of gas from a third interval between 14,220 and 14,240 feet. All the tests were conducted through a half-inch choke.
 The Buenos Aires-1 well is now being suspended and the drilling rig moved to a site four kilometres to the north-west to drill Buenos Aires-2 which is expected to spud at the end of March.
 The company said that it had also now completed testing the Mirador formation in its Cusiana-2A well, having previously tested the deeper Guadaloupe and Barco formations in mid-1991. The Mirador flowed a total of 1,878 barrels a day of condensate (39-44 degrees API) and 13.48 million cubic feet of gas, through a half-inch choke, from two intervals below 13,160 feet. The well has been suspended and the drilling rig moved eight kilometres north to drill Cusiana-3, which spudded on February 17.
 The Cusiana field is located primarily in the 378-square kilometre Santiago de las Atalayas license in the Llanos foothills, 160 kilometres north-east of the Colombian capital, Bogota. BP is the operator with a 40 percent stake. Total, through its subsidiary Total Exploratie M.I.J. BV, also has an interest of 40 percent, with Triton Energy, through its subsidiary Triton Colombia Inc., holding the remaining 20 percent. Under Colombian licensing terms, the State oil company, Ecopetrol, has the right to take a 50 percent interest in a discovery in the event of it being developed.
 BP also holds 100 percent interests in Pauto, Tamara and Sacama, three license areas totalling some 2,900 square kilometres, along a trend to the north of the Cusiana field.
