ATP Completes Production Enhancement at Gomez

ATP Oil & Gas has completed capacity upgrade and increased production at its 100%-owned and -operated Gomez development. At present, all five wells are connected and flowing at 19,600 bop/d. Associated gas accounts for an additional 55 MMcf/d. The five producing wells include four wells at Mississippi Canyon ("MC") 711 and one new well at MC 755.

"It took longer than anticipated, however that can easily happen in this water depth and with the combination of subsea and surface connections, said Leland E. Tate, ATP COO. "The delay impacted our third quarter production, which is estimated at 13.3 Bcfe (50% oil, 50% gas). This delayed production will be produced in future periods."
