W&T Offshore Announces Increase in Prospective Acreage as the Apparent High Bidder on Two Blocks in the Latest Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale
W&T Offshore, Inc. announced the Company was the apparent high bidder on two blocks in the Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 254 held by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management ("BOEM") on March 18, 2020. W&T was the apparent high bidder on one deepwater block, Garden Banks block 782, and one shallow water block, Eugene Island Area South Addition block 345.

Tracy W. Krohn, W&T's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased to be the apparent high bidder on two new attractive leases in the most recent federal lease sale. We utilized our proprietary seismic to determine the blocks we felt complemented our current acreage. These blocks are not far from existing production infrastructure which allows for more economic development of potential discoveries. While we are investing our cash flow more judiciously in 2020, we believe these blocks are a cost- effective way to increase longer-term drilling opportunities."

These two blocks cover a total of approximately 10,760 acres and, if awarded, the Company will pay approximately $708,500 for the awarded leases combined, which reflects a 100% working interest in the acreage. The shallow water block has a five-year lease term and 12.5% royalty, while the deepwater block has a seven-year lease term and an 18.75% royalty. Despite submitting the apparent high bid on these leases, the BOEM reserves the right not to award the blocks based on their minimum bidding criteria. W&T expects to receive the final award results over the next 90 days.
