STONE ENERGY ANNOUNCES RAMPART DEEP SUCCESS
Stone Energy Corporation announced drilling results from the deep water Rampart Deep well at Mississippi Canyon Block 116. Stone generated the prospect and owns a 40% non-operated working interest in the well.
The Rampart Deep well (the MC 116 #1 well), operated by Deep Gulf Energy III, encountered approximately 130 net feet of liquids-rich natural gas pay in three primary zones, as interpreted by Stone. In addition to the reserve potential of Rampart Deep, this well also provides critical information that reduces the exploration risk of Stone’s Derbio prospect, which is positioned up-dip from Rampart Deep and located one block to the northwest in Mississippi Canyon Block 72. The completion of the Rampart Deep well will be deferred while the partners analyze the well data, and will be further evaluated in conjunction with future Derbio drilling results. Drilling plans for Derbio will be reviewed with the Rampart Deep partners over the next ninety days. If Derbio is successful, first production from the Rampart Deep/Derbio project is expected by late 2019 and could be a multi-well tie back to the Stone 100% owned Pompano platform.
Interim Chief Executive Officer and President James M. Trimble stated, “The Rampart Deep well is encouraging to Stone as this discovery provides us with potential future reserves as well as important information that should reduce the risk of our other prospects in the area, particularly the Derbio prospect. The discovery at Rampart Deep, along with a success at Derbio, would allow us to further leverage our infrastructure position at our Pompano platform by generating additional production and cash flow with minimal incremental operating cost.” (Source: Stone Energy)
