Gulf of Mexico

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Nov. 8
– ATP Oil & Gas Corp., Houston, is moving a platform rig to the slot to drill the next well at its 100% owned Telemark Hub in the US Gulf of Mexico.

ATP completed a second well at the hub, Mississippi Canyon Block 941 A-1, formerly the MC 941-3, in early October 2010. During October’s production cycle, the well averaged 8,200 b/d of oil equivalent, 86% oil, and it exited the month at 12,200 boe/d, 86% oil.

ATP drilled the third and fourth wells to 12,000 ft in 2009. The target depth for each is 20,000 ft.

The Future of US Refining

When Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
