HOUSTON – Talos Energy has participated in six successful exploration wells in the US Gulf of Mexico in recent months, the company said in its latest results review.
At Pompano (Talos 100%), the Mount Hunter development well spudded in the current quarter delivered commercial volumes of oil and gas, with estimated recoverable resources of 5-6 MMboe.
Production should begin this spring, reaching up to 4 MMboe/d.
The A-26 ST well drilled from the Lobster platform encountered pay in multiple field horizons and will come onstream shortly. Talos has a 67% interest in Lobster, which came with its acquisition of EnVen’s portfolio.
Gunflint #1-ST also proved commercial quantities of oil and gas. The well will be completed and tied back with first oil by mid-year 2023 (Talos 9.6%).
The Spruance West discovery from late 2022 was also part of the EnVen package, with initial flow rates of over 3 MMboe/d.
Finally, the bp-operated Puma West appraisal well (PW #2) and subsequent downdip sidetrack both encountered hydrocarbons in multiple sands. But more hydrocarbons from a subsequent well or sidetrack would likely be needed to proceed with a development.
The PW #2 wellbore has been temporarily suspended to allow for potential sidetracking in future.
