W&T Offshore was the apparent high bidder on four Outer Continental
Shelf (OCS) blocks in the Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 198 held earlier this week by the Minerals Management Service (MMS).
Three of the blocks are in deepwater, (Green Canyon 73, Green Canyon 74, and Viosca Knoll 916) and one block is on the conventional shelf, (Viosca Knoll 520). W&T Offshore's
investment on the apparent high bids will be approximately $4.9 million, which
reflects a 100-percent working interest. High bids are subject to MMS review.
