Talos brings Tornado II well online

Written by  OE Staff Wednesday, 17 January 2018 09:16

Talos Energy has initiated production from the Tornado II well, located at the Phoenix field in the Green Canyon area of the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

The GC 281 #2ST well, located in 2700ft of water, produced over 12,350 boe/d, 83% of which was oil, during the two-week initial testing period that started on 15 December 2017.

The Tornado II drilling program consisted of an exploratory test penetration in a fault block adjacent to the company’s initial Tornado discovery in 2016, followed by the Tornado II producer to delineate and further develop the initial reservoir, Talos said in a 16 January press statement.

The company plans to flow both Tornado wells at a combined gross rate of 24,000 - 27,000 boe/d. The Tornado wells flow through the existing Phoenix field subsea infrastructure into the Helix Producer I, a dynamically positioned floating production unit on the adjacent lease, Green Canyon block 237. The existing field infrastructure allows for the expedited and capital efficient hook-up of this and future exploitation and development projects.

The original Tornado discovery well produced 7.4 MMboe in the first 15 months of production prior to the Tornado II well coming online.

 Talos is operator of and holds 65% in the Tornado wells. Deep Gulf Energy III is partner in both wells with 35% working interest.
