Rooster Petroleum, LLC Commences Drilling at Eugene Island Block 28admin
Rooster Petroleum, LLC, is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling of the Rooster #A-3 Well. It is the first well to be drilled by the Company on Eugene Island Block 28. The planned total vertical depth of the well is 12,500 ft and is expected to take 30-40 days to drill and complete. The current infrastructure currently located on Block 28 should allow for all production to be available for market immediately after hook up of the well.
The well is being drilled using the Atwood Richmond semi-submersible rig which is owned by Atwood Oceanics, Inc. Rooster Petroleum awarded a contract to Applied Drilling Technology, Inc. to drill the well on a turnkey basis.
Eugene Island Block 28 is a prolific oil and gas producing block located in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Louisiana. The Rooster #A-3 Well will test the up-dip attic potential of the Tex W sand that currently produces from the Rooster #A-2 ST1. It is anticipated that the completed well which will be operated by Rooster Petroleum will have an initial production rate of over 600 BOPD and 1.2 MMCFD. If the Rooster #A-3 Well is successful, additional development is planned for Block 28.
