The Tiger discovery contains Proved Undeveloped (PUD) gas reserves in a Pliocene age sand discovered in 2003 by the GC 195 #1 well. The Tiger field will be produced by a subsea tieback to the EW 947 platform. Cal Dive has contracted to DGE to perform the 20 mile tieback installation. Expected start of production is mid 2006 at a gross rate of 40 MMCFD.
Johnny Edwards, President of ERT stated, "Production from the Tiger field will be the first from the portfolio of deepwater development projects acquired in the last year. This portfolio also includes Tulane, Devil's Island, Bass Lite and Telemark. The benefits of the trade are the diversification of risk, the generation of additional Marine Contracting work and early production, which will reduce capital expenditure and provide cash flow in 2006."
