08:39 EDTMMR, EXXIMcMoRan Exploration updates operations at Davy Jones No. 1
McMoRan Exploration (MMR) provided an update on the Davy Jones No. 1 operations currently in progress on South Marsh Island Block 230. As previously reported, the well was opened for testing in November. Completion fluids were recovered from the well but flow was believed to be restricted by residual barite in the perforations. Barite is a heavy component of drilling mud that was used to suppress flow of the well. Recent operations to stimulate the well by injecting a solvent to dissolve the barite had limited success as a result of insufficient contact of the barite with the solvent. McMoRan is initiating operations to use a propellant stimulation gun to create fractures that will extend beyond the suspected formation damage to attempt to unblock the perforations and if necessary McMoRan may inject additional solvent to make contact and dissolve the barite. McMoRan will provide updates as flow testing operations progress and a measurable flow test is achieved. Davy Jones involves a large ultra-deep structure encompassing four OCS lease blocks (20,000 acres). McMoRan is the operator and holds a 63.4% working interest and a 50.2% net revenue interest in Davy Jones. Other working interest owners in Davy Jones include: Energy XXI (EXXI) (15.8%), JX Nippon Oil Exploration (Gulf) Limited (12%) and Moncrief Offshore LLC (8.8%).

Wells Fargo views CorEnergy's (CORR) recently announced plans to buy the Grand Isle Gathering System from Energy XXI (EXXI) as a net positive, but also a deal that carries risks due to the financial health of the seller. The firm maintains its Outperform rating on CorEnergy and raised its price target range on the stock to $9-$11, but added that it believes the stock could be worth $13 per share if Energy XXI's financial position improves and the visibility of future payments increases.
