Offshore staff

LAFAYETTE, LouisianaStone Energy Corp. has started production from the deepwater Cardona development in Mississippi Canyon block 29 in the Gulf of Mexico.

Production began in late November from the Cardona #4 and #5 wells, which are expected to reach a combined gross production volume of 12,000 boe/d over a four-week period. 

Cardona is a subsea tieback to the Stone owned and operated Pompano platform about 120 mi (193 km) southeast of New Orleans. First oil was produced from the Pompano field in October 1994 after being discovered by BP and Kerr-McGee in 1985.
