A platform jacket will be built and set up over the Main Pass Block 270 #3 BP 1 well, offshore Louisiana on the Hummer exploration prospect, ASX-listed Petsec Energy said Wednesday.
The Hummer exploration prospect is operated by Castex Energy with Petsec having 12.5 percent working interest in the well.
The well, which was drilled, and mudline suspended at 14,300 feet TVD/14,342 feet MD, will be completed and tested after the jacket has been fabricated and installed.
According to Petsec, the timeframe for the delivery and installation of the jacket is 6 to 7 months, with the estimated net cost of USD 1.08 million.
At the end of 2015, the Main Pass 270 #3 BP 1 well was drilled utilizing the Ensco 87 jack-up drilling rig.
Water depth at the prospect location is approximately 65 meters.
