This is an integrated analysis of the La Luna Formation in the Chuira pop-up structure, located in the Middle Magdalena Basin (MMVB). A structural trap originally mapped with 2D seismic and later with a 3D seismic volume, was interpreted using a conventional time structure maps and depth conversion methods. In 2009, the first well drilled a sequence of calcareous rocks which produce oil in stable natural flow but with a low rate. In order to understand this potential discovery, multidisciplinary studies were conducted including a detailed geology of the La Luna Formation information from outcrops, the integration of seismic attributes, log analysis, and an exhaustive reservoir research from existing samples.
