W&T Offshore, Inc. has been named the high bidder on two blocks in the Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 256 held by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) on November 18, 2020.

W&T submitted the winning bid on two shallow water blocks:

  • Eugene Island South Addition block 389
  • Ewing Banks block 979

These two blocks cover a total of approximately 8,800 acres.

If awarded, the Company will pay approximately $518,000 for the awarded leases combined, which reflects a 100% working interest in the acreage. The two shallow water blocks have a five-year lease term and 12.5% 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.
