ATP Oil & Gas has completed the drilling phase of deepwater Mississippi Canyon (MC) Block 941 A-2 well located at ATP’s Telemark Hub.

The company said the main pay sands are approximately 500ft structurally higher than the MC 941 A-1 well and 1000ft above the original oil-water contact.

ATP is planning to run casing to total depth, install temporary barriers in the well to enable the removal of the drilling riser and installation of the production riser.

Following this, ATP will tie-back the production casing to the surface and perforate and complete the initial production zones.

Installation of production tubing and a subsea tree will be performed prior to testing and initialization of production.

The Bolck 941 A-2 is expected to commence production in the early part of the third quarter.

ATP is the operator and holds 100% working interest in the Telemark Hub along with a 100% interest in the subsidiary that owns the ATP Titan and associated pipelines and infrastructure.
