Petsec Energy advised that a fourth development well has been spud on the Marathon gas/condensate field, located in the shallow waters of the Atchafalaya Bay along the Louisiana Gulf Coast, USA. The well was spud Oct. 22, 2012 using the Parker 76 drilling rig.
The planned 19,400 feet (5,915 meters) well is situated in approximately 8 feet (2.4 meters) water depth and is located 2,100 feet (640 meters) from the nearest well location, the Marathon #2 (State Lease 20369 #1).
