LLOG Exploration Company, L.L.C. (“LLOG” or the “Company”) today announced first production from the Company’s Praline field, a discovery in Mississippi Canyon Block 74. The Praline well was drilled in 2,600 feet of water to a total depth of 13,400 feet and discovered over 125 feet of net hydrocarbons. The well was completed in August 2020 and has been tied back to the Talos Energy-operated Pompano platform. LLOG is the operator with a 27.25% working interest and its partners in the field are entities managed by Ridgewood Energy Corporation, including ILX Holdings, Red Willow Offshore, Houston Energy and CL&F Offshore.

Philip LeJeune, LLOG’s President and Chief Executive Officer commented, “We are pleased to announce first oil from our Praline field, our first pipe-in-pipe tieback, and the continued successful development of our high quality prospect inventory. Praline is the first of four tieback projects we expect to have online in the next year. I am particularly proud that through the challenging year of 2020, our Praline field partners and Talos, our host platform partner, were able to continue with the Praline development and safely deliver a project that is more than 20% under budget. As we look toward the future, LLOG remains committed to maintaining the same high environmental, safety and operational standards that have successfully guided us for over twenty years as a premier operator in the Gulf of Mexico. We remain focused on sustainably and profitably continuing our field development campaign over the coming years.”
