This well is an offset to the Tambaqui #1 well on the 87,000 acre concession in Colombia in which the company recently purchased a 12.5% working interest through an L.L.C.
“This is an important well for HUSA and offers the potential for significantly adding to HUSA’s cash flow for 2003,” stated John F.
