Industry Brief

Apache Corp. is continuing to plan for a relief well “if that becomes necessary” as it contains natural gas migration from an offshore well in shallow Louisiana waters, a spokesman told NGI. A relief rig was sent to the site Feb. 15 as Apache monitored a well where gas had been flowing underground for several days (see Daily GPI, Feb. 19). The well, being drilled by the Ensco 87 jack-up rig, is about 50 miles east of Venice, LA, in Main Pass Block 295 in about 218 feet of water. “There has been no impact to the environment and no injuries,” said spokesman John Roper. “We are continuing to control the migration of gas in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. We are also continuing to plan for a relief well if that becomes necessary.”
