Item 8.01.     Other Events.

Pursuant to the terms of our participation in the Cara Cara concession in
Colombia, Houston American Energy Corp. has been notified that the producing
wells and associated producing field of the Cara Cara concession have attained
"commerciality" as defined under the concession.  As a result of such
determination, Ecopetrol, the Colombian-owned oil company, is entitled to an
additional thirty percent of production, as payment in-kind, from all current
wells drilled on the Cara Cara concession and new wells drilled in the
associated field and Ecopetrol will be responsible for thirty percent of the
costs of operating existing wells and drilling and operating new wells in the
associated field.  An accounting is presently under way to determine the exact
point in time at which "commerciality" occurred and Ecopetrol's allocable share
of revenues and costs.  The revised payments and expense burden do not apply to
areas of concession outside of the field associated with the existing wells.
Similarly, the changes do not affect Houston American's other concessions in

Giving effect to the changes, Houston American's working interest in the Cara
Cara concession continues to be 1.59%.  The payments to Ecopetrol are treated in
the nature of royalties even though Ecopetrol will be responsible for payment,
or reimbursement, of its allocable share of operating expenses going forward.
As of April 4, 2005, after giving effect to the change in payments to Ecopetrol,
Houston American's net daily production, after royalties, equaled approximately
158 barrels of oil per day and 198 mcf of natural gas per day.  Daily oil
production is up 27.4% from 124 barrels of oil per day at October 18, 2004, the
date Houston American last posted its daily production.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the
Registrant has duly caused this Report to be signed on its behalf by the
undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
