VANCOUVER -- Production has begun at the Eagle's Nest field in
Eugene Island block 6 in the state waters of Louisiana, according to
Bayou Bend Petroleum. The well was opened on July 24, 2008, and is
currently flowing at 35.1 MMcf/d and 744 b/d of condensate with 9170 psi

planned for a total depth of 17,000 ft (5,182 m) MD/TVD, which should be
reached in early August. If the well is successful it will also be
tied-in to Contango's EI 11 production facility for processing and

The company's Eugene Island block 164 well No. 1 was spudded on June 24,
