ANADARKO AND PARTNERS TO TEST WELL IN GULF OF MEXICO

 HOUSTON, Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today announced plans by the company and its partners to test an exploratory gas well drilled at Matagorda Island Block 636 in the Gulf of Mexico offshore Texas.
 Electric logs and other tests indicate an apparent accumulation of hydrocarbons in the OCS-G 13768 No. 1 well, which was drilled to a total depth of 18,834 feet. The partners have set casing to a depth of 17,100 feet and plan to lay a pipeline between the well and the nearby Matagorda Island Block 623-C platform and utilize a completion rig to conduct production tests. Additional information on the well will be made available after testing.
 The partners purchased Matagorda Block 636 in August 1992 at OCS Sale No. 141 for $5.8 million. It is located adjacent to a large Matagorda Island gas field, discovered by Anadarko in 1980, which is currently producing about 185 million cubic feet of gas per day and 1,400 barrels of condensate per day from Blocks 622-623-635.
 Amoco Production Company, a subsidiary of Amoco Corporation, is operator with a 43.5 percent working interest. Other partners in Matagorda Block 636 are Union Pacific Resources Company (19.0 percent) and Anadarko (37.5 percent).
 Anadarko Petroleum Corporation is one of the nation's largest independent natural gas and crude oil exploration and production companies. Anadarko's exploration, development and production activities are concentrated in North America's primary geologic basins onshore and offshore. Exploration efforts also are conducted in frontier areas of the United States and overseas. Anadarko has activities in 20 states and three Canadian provinces.
