Spanish term or phrase: play
"sólo serían recuperables económicamente aquellos recursos que coinciden en la vertical con recursos del play inferior"
The text deals with trilling oil wells and appears to be from Argentina. Might "play" actually be "playa", which is also used in English.

Explanation:
"play" is a common English term. I would leave it as is. A "play" is a set of oil and gas accumulations that have nearly identical geological characteristics. See the URL below.
