LLOG Exploration Company is currently developing five discoveries in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, all of which are scheduled to be on line by the first quarter of 2012, more than doubling the company’s production volume.
Scott Gutterman, LLOG president and CEO, stated, “We have remained active in the Gulf of Mexico during these challenging times by continuing a seven-well completion program following recent Deepwater discoveries. We look forward to approval of several pending permits that will allow us to return to our primary focus, which is exploration." 

LLOG’s Who Dat development, located in Mississippi Canyon 503/504/547, was discovered in late 2007 and delineated by two additional wells drilled in 2010. The development consists of Miocene-aged, amplitude-supported sands. The three wells are expected to be on line in the third quarter of 2011. Afloating production platform will be installed at Mississippi Canyon 547 to process production from the development. Additional drilling is planned to fully develop the property. LLOG Deepwater Development, L.L.C. is the owner of the Who Dat development with a 100% working interest. 

LLOG’s Mandy development, located in Mississippi Canyon 199, was discovered in early 2010. Two discovery wells are planned for completion during the second quarter of 2011, with first production expected in the fourth quarter of 2011. Both wells will be tied back subsea to the Matterhorn TLP production system in Mississippi Canyon 243. LLOG has a 50% working interest and is the operator of the Mandy development. 

LLOG’s Goose development, located in Mississippi Canyon 751, will be a single well subsea tieback to LLOG’s existing production manifold at Mississippi Canyon 707. Projected start-up is the first quarter of 2012. LLOG’s working interest is 100%. 

The Anduin discovery is located in Mississippi Canyon 754 and is being developed as a single well subsea tieback to the Innovator floating production system in Mississippi Canyon 711. First production is expected in the first half of 2011. LLOG’s working interest in the field is 25%.
