Apache Joins Marine Well Containment Company
Apache Corporation announced that its subsidiary, Apache Deepwater LLC, has agreed to join Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC), a not-for-profit, independent organization committed to being continuously ready to respond to a well control incident in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

"Apache is committed to safe and responsible operations," said G. Steven Farris, chairman and chief executive officer. "As we resume drilling operations in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, we recognize we must be vigilant in managing risks properly. We also recognize that it is essential to have the capability to respond rapidly to a subsea well control incident even as we expect the equipment will never be used.

"We are pleased to join the founders of MWCC in developing a system that greatly improves the industry's response capabilities," Farris said.

Other MWCC members are ExxonMobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Shell and BP.

"We are happy to have Apache as a member of the Marine Well Containment Company. It is an active Gulf of Mexico operator and a key participant in offshore deepwater development," said Marty Massey, MWCC chief executive officer. "We have been working with Gulf of Mexico operators since last year to inform potential members about MWCC. The membership formation period started in the middle of February. Each member will have equal ownership, as well as share in the development and operating costs."

In the event of an incident, MWCC will support equipment mobilization. An interim containment system is ready for deployment with the capacity to contain up to 60,000 barrels per day of fluid in up to 8,000 feet of water. Work is also underway on an expanded containment system for delivery in 2012 to handle up to 100,000 barrels per day of fluid in up to 10,000 feet of water.
