Offshore staff

HOUSTON – ATP Oil & Gas Corp. reports first oil produced from its Mississippi Canyon block 941 A-2 well to the Telemark Hub using the ATP Titan floating drilling and production platform.

All permits to spud the fourth well, MC 942 #2, have been approved, and production projected later this year.

The well is in the Mirage field and is the third brought on production at Telemark, in approximately 4,000 ft (1,219 m) water depth in the Gulf of Mexico.

The well delivered on ATP's original expectations with an initial rate exceeding 7,000 b/d of oil. When drilled, the A-2 well encountered four Miocene sands that are approximately 500 ft (152 m) structurally higher than the same sands in the MC 941 A-1 well. The A-2 well is completed at a measured depth of 17,600 ft (5,364 m) in the C and D sands.
