The Praline well was drilled in 2,600 ft (792 m) of water to a total depth of 13,400 ft (4,084 m) and discovered more than 125 ft (38 m) of net hydrocarbons. The well was completed in August 2020 and has been tied back to the Talos Energy-operated Pompano platform.
LLOG is the operator with a 27.25% working interest, and its partners in the field are entities managed by Ridgewood Energy Corp., including ILX Holdings, Red Willow Offshore, Houston Energy, and CL&F Offshore.
Philip LeJeune, LLOG’s president and CEO said: “We are pleased to announce first oil from our Praline field, our first pipe-in-pipe tieback, and the continued successful development of our high-quality prospect inventory. Praline is the first of four tieback projects we expect to have online in the next year.”
