ATP adds Mirage well at Telemark hub

By OGJ editors

ATP Oil & Gas Corp., Houston, has brought on production a third well at its Telemark hub in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Drilled to 12,000 ft by the ATP Titan vessel and cased before the Macondo spill, the Mississippi Canyon 941 A-2 well in Mirage field is flowing at the expected rate of more than 7,000 b/d of oil equivalent. When drilled, it encountered four Miocene sands that are 500 ft structurally higher than the same sands in the MC 941 A-1 well.

The A-2 well is completed at 17,600 ft measured depth in the C and D sands. All permits to drill the fourth well, MC 942 No. 2, have been approved with production projected later this year. Company-wide production now exceeds 31,000 boe/d.

ATP operates Telemark in 4,000 ft of water with a 100% working interest and holds a 100% ownership in ATP Titan LLC which owns the ATP Titan floating drilling and production vessel and associated pipelines and infrastructure.
