Rampart Deep is located in northeastern Mississippi Canyon, approximately 8.5 miles south of the Pompano Field. The prospect was comprised of multiple amplitude anomalies in the Upper and Middle Miocene sections with excellent AVO response, analogous to oil producing reservoirs in the Pompano (>150 MMBOE) and Herschel (30 MMBOE) fields. DGE III successfully drilled the initial well on the prospect and discovered high liquid-yield gas pay sands in both the middle Miocene M58 and M57 formations. The discovery in the M57 sand will be appraised by the Derbio well in Mississippi Canyon, Bock 72.
