Baker Hughes Deploys HPHT Technology at Davy Jones

Baker Hughes deployed a full suite of technologies designed for high-pressure, high-temperature environments at the Davy Jones ultra-deep gas discovery. The technology was employed to re-enter an existing well, set a whipstock at roughly 17,300 feet and drill to more than 29,000 feet measured depth in the extreme HPHT conditions of the Gulf's Lower Tertiary formations. The wireline logging operations were conducted at 28,134 feet and included acoustic, gamma ray, density, and neutron logs. The wireline logging operation will provide additional reservoir understanding of the field. Davy Jones is located on South Marsh Island Block 230 in 20 feet (6 meters) of water in the Gulf of Mexico. McMoran operates the block, holding a 32.7% interest.
