– Portrush Petroleum Corp., Vancouver, BC, signed an agreement with an undisclosed operator to develop a 1,200-acre prospect in Pointe Coupee Parish 30 miles northwest of Baton Rouge, La.

Portrush will review all existing technical data on the prospect, a downtrown fault trap in the fairway of the Oligocene and Eocene producing trends and possibly prospective in the Frio, Vicksburg, Cockfield, Sparta, and Wilcox sand series.

An initial well would be drilled to 11,600 ft. If it is successful, five wells will be required to complete development.
