LLOG Exploration Announces First Production from Spruance Field

LLOG Exploration announced recent production from its self-operated Spruance field. The company’s expertise in privately owned exploration and production focuses on the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

The new production location is Blocks 877 and 921 of Ewing Bank (EW). In its submarine development, the production is approximately 16,000 barrels of oil per day altogether. Also, a production of 13 million cubic feet of gas per day via a 14-mile subsea link to the EnVen-Lobster Platform operated at EW 873. Less than three years since the initial exploratory discovery well drilled, they were able to get the first production.

The Spruance field discovery came from LLOG and associates since the beginning in mid-2019, thanks to an exploratory well, EW 877 #1. They drilled with 1,570 feet of water to a total depth of 17,000 feet and approximate logging of 150 net feet of oil.

Later, in a second well, EW 921 #1 drilled began in the exact shallow location as the discovery well. This means that at the beginning of October 2020, it had a total depth of 16,600 feet.

The productive areas of the main field were successfully delineated, causing additional oil areas to be recorded in the exploratory part of the well. Thus, more than 200 net feet of oil found there.

Philip LeJeune, President, and CEO of LLOG, commented, “We are pleased to announce the first oil from the Spruance field. With its everages existing infrastructure and LLOG’s operational capabilities to bring on meaningful production safely. By remaining active throughout commodity price cycles and delivering world-class results, we are seeing significant production growth. Also a higher pricing environment. We are executing our strategy of developing deepwater GOM projects. That is in areas that have been prolific in the past and that we understand very well. We are excited about our future as we are in various stages of development for multiple discoveries. That will continue to help us create value in the deepwater GOM.”
