The Puskon-1 exploration well off the coast of Tuxpan, Veracruz, established the existence of an active petroleum system in the area, confirming the presence of wet gas at a depth of 23,622 ft, according to Pemex.
The well was drilled in a water depth of 2,122 ft (647 m), in order to evaluate the potential for a Mesozoic formation.
The well’s total depth was 26,657 ft (8,125 m) The wet gas was confirmed at 23,622 ft (7,200 m). Higher than expected temperatures and pressures were encountered at 25,039 ft (7,632 m).
Based on rock samples and geophysical log analysis, it was possible for Pemex to identify a thickness of 2,598 ft (792 m) of rocks of Paleocene age and two intervals with oil between 23,294 ft (7,100 m) and 24,426 ft (7,445 m) of oil.
