It was discovered in 1967 at an average depth of 4,200 m s.s.l. and produces volatile oil (41 API) from continental sandstone. The crude is paraffinic with wax content of 36.7% and high pour point temperature (39 C). First oil was pumped in 1972.
A water injection project was set up in 1974. Since water production has increased considerably in the last five years, the feasibility of an EOR tertiary process is being studied to improve the final oil recovery.
