Thursday, January 31, 2013
  • The rig is being moved off location for several months while a large scale hydraulic fracture treatment is designed to penetrate the Wilcox reservoirs.

McMoRan Exploration Co. (NYSE: MMR) updated the status of the Davy Jones No. 1 well on South Marsh Island Block 230. As previously reported, McMoRan is developing plans at the Davy Jones No. 1 well to pump a hydraulic fracture treatment including proppant to facilitate hydrocarbon movement into the wellbore. Future plans will incorporate data gained to date at Davy Jones as well as potential core and log data from the in progress well at Lineham Creek, located onshore approximately 50 miles northwest of Davy Jones. The rig is being moved off location for several months while a large scale hydraulic fracture treatment is designed to penetrate the Wilcox reservoirs.

As previously reported, the Davy Jones No. 1 well logged 200 net feet of pay in multiple Wilcox sands, which were all full to base. The Davy Jones offset appraisal well (Davy Jones No. 2), which is located two and a half miles southwest of Davy Jones No. 1, confirmed 120 net feet of pay in multiple Wilcox sands, indicating continuity across the major structural features of the Davy Jones prospect, and also encountered 192 net feet of potential hydrocarbons in the Tuscaloosa and Lower Cretaceous carbonate sections.

McMoRan is the operator and holds a 63.4 percent working interest and a 50.2 percent net revenue interest in Davy Jones. Other working interest owners in Davy Jones include: Energy XXI (NASDAQ: EXXI) (15.8%), JX Nippon Oil Exploration (Gulf) Limited (12%) and Moncrief Offshore LLC (8.8%).
