LLOG, Partners Sanction Stonefly Development In GoM

LLOG Exploration and partners have sanctioned the Stonefly development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GoM), the Louisiana-headquartered company said.

The two-well Stonefly, located in the Viosca Knoll area of the central GoM, will be developed as a subsea tieback to the Talos Energy-owned Ram Powell platform, LLOG said Sept. 4 in an operational update. The decision to sanction the deepwater discovery comes about two years after a well drilled by LLOG struck oil-bearing sands in the Middle Miocene. A second well drilled in 2017 also hit pay.
