ATP: Hurricane Ike Impact Minimal

ATP Oil & Gas reports minimal impact from Hurricane Ike based on preliminary inspections of its production and drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico. The ATP Innovator at ATP's Mississippi Canyon Block 711 "Gomez" Hub is on location and initial assessments found minimal damage. ATP is currently producing at Canyon Express and plans to bring production back online at other locations as soon as the receiving stations and pipelines are operational. Drilling efforts are continuing at West Cameron 479 and Mississippi Canyon 941.

Prior to Ike's arrival, all ATP personnel were evacuated from producing platforms expected to be in the path of the storm. Various platforms, production facilities, pipelines and receiving stations operated by others which process and transport ATP production were similarly shut-in and evacuated. ATP will provide further updates as more information becomes available.
