Amerisur Resources said a rig was poised to start drilling a new exploration well in Colombia.

The rig mast had been raised at the Indico-1 well on the CPO-5 block and drilling was expected 'shortly', the company said.

Amerisur held a 30% non-operated interest in the well, which was 70%-owned and operated by ONGC Videsh.

It was targeting the same play as the successful Mariposa-1 well, but was further up-dip in a larger structure.
