Apache Completes Well Control Operations at Main Pass 295

On Feb. 28, Apache reported that well control operations at Main Pass 295 have been successfully completed.

The bottom of the well has been plugged and cemented and the migration of natural gas to another sand formation (which was occurring approximately 1,100 feet beneath the seafloor) has been stopped.

No injuries or negative impact to the environment were associated with this incident. Apache currently is evaluating next steps for the well.
