change text size

Murphy Oil Corporation has announced the results of two recent exploration wells in the Eastern Gulf of Mexico.

A discovery was made at its Dalmatian exploration well with a bottom hole location in De Soto Canyon Block 48, while its Manhattan exploration well located in Lloyd Ridge 511 was unsuccessful and has been plugged and abandoned.

The Dalmatian well was drilled by the semisub Ocean Confidence in just under 5,900 feet of water and found 120 feet measured depth of net high quality natural gas pay. Plans are to develop the well as a subsea tie back to existing infrastructure in the area.

Murphy owns a 50% working interest in Dalmatian and serves as operator. Partners are Newfield Exploration, 37.5% and Mariner Energy, Inc., 12.5%. Murphy owns a 100% working interest in Manhattan.
