W&T Offshore Remains Excited About 2008 Drilling Program

Tracy W. Krohn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "While I am pleased that we are twelve for fourteen so far this year for an 86% success rate, we are disappointed that we had two non-commercial wells. However, we remain encouraged and excited about our 2008 drilling program in the Gulf of Mexico. Currently we have 9 rigs running and remain active. We recently brought on production at Ship Shoal 224 E-18, Ship Shoal 300 A-2ST and Ship Shoal 314 A-2ST and anticipate more throughout the year. Additionally, we have completed a well stimulation program on three wells at our Mahogany project."
