Also in the Gulf of Mexico, Pogo has a 25% non-operating interest in an exploratory well drilled at Ship Shoal Block 52, where some 66 feet of gross hydrocarbon pay was encountered at a subsea depth beginning at 16,912 feet, and an additional 40 feet of gross pay was found at approximately 15,600 feet subsea. A flow test on the well yielded a calculated rate of 970 barrels of oil and 2.7 million cubic feet of natural gas per day on a 14/64-inch choke. The well is currently being completed and development alternatives are being reviewed by the partners.
An important exploratory well drilled by Pogo, as operator and 50% owner, on Eugene Island Block 280 has successfully encountered 120 feet of gross natural gas column at a subsea depth of approximately 15,850 feet. Prompt development of this newly discovered natural gas field is now being planned.
Elsewhere in the Gulf of Mexico, Pogo has plugged a 100% owned and Pogo- operated unsuccessful exploration well drilled at Ewing Bank Block 830.
