Apache Corporation announced two successful offshore completions in the Gulf of Mexico. The development wells produced a combined total of 31.6 mm cfpd of gas and 3,376 bpd. "This marks significant progress in a region where Apache has established a major presence," said Jon Jeppesen, vice president of the Offshore region.
"These high-rate wells reflect the company's core competency -- aggressively exploiting producing properties where infrastructure exists to immediately impact production and cash flow," he said. The A-7 field development well in Ship Shoal 189 was completed in the "P" sand from 14,216 feet to 14,250 feet. The well flowed 29.5 mm cfpd of gas and 252 bpd on a 22/64-inch choke with 7,450 psi of flowing tubing pressure.
The A-20 sidetrack in Main Pass 77 was dually completed in the C-54 and C-46 sands, producing a combined total of 3,124 bpd and 2.1 mm cfpd of gas. Perforations in the C-54 sand were between 10,870 feet and 19,950 feet on a 30/64-inch choke with 1,230 psi of flowing tubing pressure.
Perforations in the C-46 sand were between 9,950 feet and 10,036 feet on the same choke with 420 psi of flowing tubing pressure.
Apache operates and holds a 96 % interest in the Ship Shoal 189 A-7 well. The company holds a 26 % interest in the Main Pass 77 A-20 well, which is operated by Chevron. Both wells are currently on production.

Apache Corporation is a large gas and oil independent with operations in North America, Egypt, Western Australia, Poland and the People's Republic of China.
