BSEE confirmed today that Energy Resource Technology, LLC (ERT) has stopped the flow of natural gas from well #2 at Ship Shoal Block 225, Platform B. The flow from the well, located approximately 74 miles southwest of Port Fourchon, La.., was stopped using a pumping operation approved by BSEE that involved pumping drilling fluids into the well. More work is required to permanently secure the well. In the interim, BSEE is requiring that ERT monitor the well for any changes.

BSEE engineers are reviewing plans and procedures from ERT for moving forward to isolate the well’s hydrocarbon zone. A BSEE supervisory inspector is on board the platform monitoring the on-going site assessment and well analysis. Preparations and work to permanently seal the well are expected to continue through the weekend. BSEE first confirmed reports from ERT that there was a loss of well control on July 8, at approximately 9:45 a.m.
