Prolific History. Our West Cote Blanche Bay field is located in the shallow waters of St. Mary Parish, approximately 45 miles south of Lafayette, LA. Since 1998, Gulfport has conducted its development activities in this flagship field on floating barge rigs, service vessels and our raised production facilities. Highlighted facts regarding West Cote Blanche Bay include:
Significant salt intrusive feature, elliptical in shape, created traps in the Pliocene through the middle Miocene in a series of complex, steeply dipping fault blocks
Strong Production and Valuable Reserves. The West Cote Blanche Bay reservoirs are characterized by high porosity and permeability. Each well path contains stacked pay zones and is designed to exploit an average of five to six pay zones per well bore.
