In its third quarter results, Marathon Oil confirmed that work is under way to install flowlines that will tie back the Droshky wells to the third-party operated Bullwinkle platform.

First production from Droshky, in which Marathon holds a 100 percent operated working interest, is targeted for mid-2010.

Located on Green Canyon Block 244 in deepwater Gulf of Mexico, Droshky is situated in 2,900 feet (884 meters) of water about 137 miles (220 kilometers) southwest of Venice, Louisiana. Previously named "Troika Deep," Droshky is wholly owned and operated by Marathon Oil.
