The Big Bend Field was discovered by Noble Energy in 2011. The discovery well encountered 121 net feet of oil pay in the middle Miocene. DGE III bought an interest in the field post-discovery. The field is jointly developed with Noble’s Dantzler discovery and the shared subsea system consists of dual flowlines tied back to the Thunder Hawk FPS. First production was achieved in October of 2015 with a second well expected to be drilled contingent on reservoir performance.
