Indico-1 Update   


Amerisur Resources Plc, the oil and gas producer and explorer focused on South America, is pleased to announce that the rig mast has been raised at Indico-1, on the CPO-5 block ahead of spudding. The spudding of Indico-1 using rig E-2029 is expected shortly. Amerisur holds a 30% non-operated interest in the well, which is 70%-owned and operated by ONGC Videsh Ltd ("the Operator").  Photographs of the rig mast can be found on the Company's Twitter page @AmerisurResourc.

Indico-1 is targeting the same play as the successful Mariposa-1 well but is further up-dip in a larger structure. The Operator estimates a gross P50 recoverable resource at Indico-1 of 10.3 MMBO. CPO-5 is located to the south of the prolific Llanos 34 block and to the east of the Corcel fields and includes the producing Mariposa-1 well.


A further announcement will be made on completion of drilling operations.
