The Kaskida field is located on Keathley Canyon Block 291 in 5,675 feet (1,730 meters) of water roughly 250 miles (402 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans. BP serves as the operator of Kaskida and holds 100% interest.
Kaskida was discovered in August 2006 by the Deepwater Horizon semisub when drilling encountered 800 feet (244 meters) of net hydrocarbon bearing sands, and confirmed by an appraisal well in November 2009. The appraisal well was drilled to a total depth of 32,500 feet (9,906 meters) confirming oil in the Lower Tertiary trend.
The operator will continue to appraise the area to find additional hydrocarbons before announcing field development plans.
