Title: Oil and Gas Developments in Atlantic Coastal Plain and Outer Continental Shelf in 1982

Author(s): A. C. Giordano, G. B. Carpenter, R. V. Amato (2)


Exploratory drilling in the Atlantic coastal plain region declined slightly in 1982. Five wells were spudded, 4 on Georges Bank and 1 in south-central coastal New Jersey. Eight wells were completed in 1982; all were announced to be dry. There were no wells actively drilling at year end. Three hundred and eighty-seven tracts were offered for lease as part of Sale RS-2. Bids of $7,209,300 were received on 28 tracts, and 26 tracts were actually leased. The level of seismic data acquisition increased 50% over 1981 to 36,820 line-mi (59,260 line-km).
