Bois d'Arc Energy Surveys Production Facilities in Gulf of Mexico

Bois d'Arc Energ has completed an aerial survey of its Gulf of Mexico production facilities and the three drilling rigs that it currently has under contract. The Company's production facilities which were flown over appear to be intact and no substantial damage was observed. Bois d'Arc was unable to survey its Main Pass block 21 facility which, prior to the shut-in for the hurricane, was producing 150 barrels of oil per day.

Bois d'Arc dispatched field personnel in work boats to better access damage on the production platforms and to determine when production operations can be resumed.

In preparation for Hurricane Katrina, Bois d'Arc shut in substantially all of its production on August 27th, and safely evacuated all of its personnel and contractors from the Gulf of Mexico. Bois d'Arc will have a more detailed assessment of storm related damages and total production volumes that will be deferred as result of the hurricane as information is available.
