ANADARKO ANNOUNCES GAS DISCOVERY IN JACKSON COUNTY, TEXAS

 HOUSTON, Nov. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: APC) today announced its fourth discovery in a recent string of successful natural gas completions in Jackson County, Texas, about 90 miles southwest of Houston.
 The Stafford No. 2 well tested at a rate of 10,000 thousand cubic feet per day (Mcf/d) of natural gas and 65 barrels of condensate per day (BCPD) through a 14/64-inch choke with 2,780 pounds per square inch of flowing tubing pressure. Perforations are between 6,422 feet and 6,498 feet in the Yegua Sand of southeast Texas. Anadarko is operator with a 100 percent working interest in the well, and has interests in approximately 2,000 lease acres surrounding the discovery.
 In 1992, Anadarko joined in partnership with Fina Oil and Chemical Co. and Yuma Petroleum Co. to explore five mid-dip Yegua Trend prospects in Jackson County. These prospects had been developed through a seismic processing technique known as "amplitude versus offset" (AVO). To date, four of the five prospects have been drilled and completed as commercial gas discoveries, as
