Two intervals were selected for the drill stem test, achieving the following results:
a) DST – 01: Interval 2,254.0 to 2,260.3 meters - Juruá Formation Lower Member – Reach a stable production rate of 520,456 cubic meters (18,379,737 cubic feet) of natural gas per day, with a choke of 40/64” (The estimated AOF for this test is 1,600,000 cubic meters per day / 56,503,488 cubic feet per day).
b) DST – 02: Interval 2,208.0 to 2,217.0 meters - Juruá Formation Lower Member – Reach a production rate of 143,092 cubic meters (5,053,248 cubic feet) of natural gas per day, with a choke of 40/64”.
