CALGARY and LONDON, Dec. 7 /CNW/ - Solana Resources Limited (TSX-V: SOR;
AIM: SORL) announces that the Cocodrilo-1 well, located in the Catguas Block,
Catatumbo Basin, north eastern Colombia, will be plugged and abandoned.
Cocodrilo-1 was drilled to a total measured depth of 3,197 feet penetrating
the primary objectives, the Barco and Catatumbo formations. Although these
objectives were oil bearing, subsequent fluid tests and side wall core
analyses indicated that sub-commercial flow rates would be encountered.
Significant geological information was gained drilling Cocodrilo-1 which will
prove very valuable as Solana moves forward in this highly prospective area.
Solana is the operator of the Catguas Block with a 100% working interest.
Trayectoria Oil and Gas, Sucursal Colombia holds a 15% beneficial interest in
the portion of the block containing the Cocodrilo-1 well.
Cocodrilo-1 is the sixth well in Solana's 2007 six well exploration
program, and the second of the two well program on the Catguas Block. Solana
has had three successes in its 2007 exploration campaign.
Mr. Glenn Van Doorne, Chief Operating Officer of Solana, a Petroleum
Geologist, is the qualified person who has reviewed the technical information
contained in this news release.
