Seagull finds gas in Texas Gulf
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.
