W&T Offshore encountered hydrocarbon pay at Ewing Banks 910 with the successful drilling and evaluation of the Ewing Banks 910 A-5 ST well in the Gulf of Mexico.
The company logged 160ft of gross hydrocarbon interval and is currently completing the well. Recovery from the well is expected to exceed pre-drill estimates and W&T anticipates that the well could be online and flowing by the end of the 2Q 2015.
The next well to be drilled at Ewing Banks 910 will be the A-8 exploration well, which based on seismic data, is estimated to be a significantly larger reserve target than the recently successful A-5 ST well. W&T has additional drilling locations in the area as a result of ongoing geological and geophysical review of new WAZ seismic data.
W&T is the operator of Ewing with a 50% working interest.
