Seagull finds gas in Texas Gulf

Jan 22, 1997 01:00 AM

Seagull Energy Corporation has announced a natural gas discovery at the High Island 9-L No. 1 well in Texas state waters offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Seagull and its partner encountered 55 feet of productive sands that tested 4.4 million cubic feet of gas and 883 barrels of condensate per day through a 12/64-inch choke with a flowing tubing pressure of 7,324 pounds per square inch. The new discovery will be connected to a Seagull-operated production complex nearby and should be flowing gas to markets within four months. Initial production rates are expected to be higher than those recorded on the short flow test. Additional drilling will be evaluated after production is monitored for a period of time. Seagull Energy's exploration and production subsidiary holds a 60 % interest and is operator of the new discovery. The remaining 40 % interest is held by Apache Corporation.
Houston-based Seagull is an international oil and gas company engaged in exploration and development in the United States, Egypt, Canada, Cote d'Ivoire, Indonesia and the Russian Republic of Tatarstan. It also transports, distributes and markets natural gas, liquids products and petrochemicals in the United States and Canada.
