Dominion Exploration & Production, a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion, and its partners announced a discovery on their Thunder Hawk prospect in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

The Mississippi Canyon Block 734 #1 ST1, an exploratory well operated by Dominion, encountered approximately 300 feet of net oil pay in two high-quality reservoir zones. These zones, the main pre-drill targets, were found water-bearing in the original hole (Mississippi Canyon 734 #1).

The sidetrack well, operated by Dominion, was drilled 150 miles southeast of New Orleans in a water depth of 5,724 feet. The well reached a total measured depth of 24,831 feet and a true vertical depth of 23,101 feet subsea and will be temporarily abandoned.

Dominion has a 25 percent interest. Its partners are: Murphy Exploration & Production Company (a wholly owned subsidiary of Murphy Oil Corporation) 37.5 percent; Spinnaker Exploration Company25 percent; and Pioneer Natural Resources Company12.5 percent.
