The current proven and probable field limits cover 2,451 acres and the reserves have been fully delineated by two existing new wells along with six older wells. The two existing new wells are currently capable of production in excess of 20 mmcf of gas per day. As previously announced, Avanti has identified an extension to the Colle Santo field that has tremendous potential to expand the existing reserves. CMI is operator and, along with its partners, owns a 90% (net 33.3%) working interest in the project.
