Houston-based oil and gas company Talos Energy has started drilling the Bulleit appraisal well in Green Canyon 21 in the Gulf of Mexico using the Noble Don Taylor drillship.

As previously reported, the Noble Don Taylor drillship was on location at the end of April.

Otto Energy, Talos’ partner in the project, said on Tuesday that, as at Monday, May 6 the well was at 4,190 feet setting 22 inch surface casing, having already set the 28 inch surface casing.

Otto Energy will earn a 16.67% working interest in the Green Canyon 21 (GC-21) lease in the Gulf Mexico through paying 22.22% of the cost of the drilling of the “Bulleit” appraisal well.

Bulleit is an amplitude-supported Pliocene prospect with similar seismic attributes to the analogous MP sand section in Talos’s Green Canyon 18 field, which has produced approximately 39 MMBoe to date.

The Bulleit prospect sits in approximately 1,200 feet of water and is 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the GC18A platform. If successful, the well would be completed and tied back to the Talos owned and operated Green Canyon 18 (GC 18) facility approximately 10 miles away.

According to Otto, the well is expected to take approximately 42 days to drill on a trouble free basis.
