Platform jacket in the making for Hummer prospect in Gulf of Mexico

Petsec Energy, an independent oil and gas exploration and production company, informed on Wednesday that a platform jacket will be fabricated and installed over the Main Pass Block 270 #3 BP 1 well on the Hummer exploration prospect, in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. 

The well is located in U.S. federal offshore waters, approximately 50 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana.

The well, which was drilled and mud-line suspended at 14,300 feet TVD/14,342 feet MD, will be completed and tested after the jacket has been fabricated and installed, Petsec said on Wednesday.

The anticipated timeframe for the fabrication, installation, well completion and testing is approximately 6 to 7 months, and, according to Petsec, the estimated date for jacket installation is June 2016.

The Main Pass 270 #3 BP 1 well was drilled using the Ensco 87 jack-up drilling rig. Water depth at the prospect location is approximately 215 feet.

Petsec Energy has 12.5% working interest in the well while 87.5% interest is owned by other private companies. Castex Offshore is the operator of the well.

In July 2014, Petsec sold its working interests in the Marathon and the Main Pass 270 fields, together with certain associated exploration interests, to a privately held U.S. exploration and production company, but retained a 12.5% working interest in the exploration rights in Main Pass 270, 273 and 274.
