Apache said the well was "a rank wildcat" that had been given a one-in-four chance of success at the outset. Early seismic testing showed the potential for a very large find in the play, which was in 4,606 feet of water. The well was drilled by Atwood Oceanics' semisub, Atwood Eagle.
Apache holds a 65% stake in the prospect and Kufpec holds the remaining 35%.
