Drilling Activity Summary


A deepwater bypass has been scheduled by Beacon Offshore Energy at the company’s Tabasco prospect. The venture will be in the eastern half of Green Canyon Block 35 at #1 (BP) OCS G36624. The permit indicates that the bypass is expected to be kicked off at 11,670 ft. Area water depth is 1,850 ft. According to the prospect’s exploration plan, as many as three tests will be drilled in the eastern half of the tract. A partnership of four companies led by Beacon acquired the drilling rights to Green Canyon Block 35 in 2019. Oil and gas production in this part of the deepwater Gulf comes from two fields—Manta Ray and Prince—in the Ewing Bank area to the north. Beacon’s headquarters are in Houston.
