HOUSTON – ATP Oil & Gas Corp. has completed drilling the A-2 well in deepwater Mississippi Canyon block 941 at the Telemark Hub. ATP says the well confirmed pre-drill estimates regarding pay sands.

Plans are to run casing to total depth, install temporary barriers to permitting removal of the drilling riser and installation of the production riser. Tieback of the production casing to the surface and perforating and completing the initial production zones are to follow, says ATP.

Production tubing and a subsea tree installation will precede testing and initialization of production. First production is expected in 3Q 2011.

ATP operates the deepwater Telemark Hub with a 100% working interest.
