Talos Energy Inc. recently brought the Tornado Attic well online—a first of its kind project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico’s Green Canyon area, the Houston-based offshore operator revealed in an operations update on July 26.

The Tornado Field was discovered in 2016 and is located approximately three miles south of the Talos’ Phoenix complex. The Tornado Attic well is the third sidetrack well at the Talos-operated project and was successfully drilled in June.

Talos said in a release on July 26 it executed completion operations for the Tornado Attic well and achieved first production in mid-July. The well is currently producing above the previously estimated 8,000-10,000 boe/d range.
