Update to 2010 ATP Production Outlook

|Includes:ATP Oil & Gas Corp. (ATPAQ)

With yesterday's presentation slides indicating that the 2 additional Canyon Express wells are on production I feel that we can conclude that this huge production ramp that I've been writing about for months is now officially and well under way.

Enter year at 13,600 BOE per day

Late January - Add 4,600 per day Gomez #4
Early March - Add 2,600 per day at Canyon Express
This week - Add another 2,600 per day at Canyon Express

Current pre Telemark - Roughly 23,000 BOE per day

So up 73% before Telemark even starts

Telemark - Roughly 30,000 BOE per day that will be fully on maybe in Q3 but certainly in Q4.

So we have 23,000 pre-Telemark plus 30,000 Telemark

That is 53,000 BOE per day or 3.89x the Q4 2009 rate

And that EXCLUDES the following:

1) A well being drilled at Canyon Express in Q2 (per recent presentation)
2) Gomez well MC711 #9 in Q4
3) Gomez well MC711 #10 early 2011
4) Gomez MC754 just acquired another 50% interest in this and the well is drilled already and is 1500 feet from the Innovator, could be Q4
5) Gomez MC710 - mirror image of 711 ATP mentioned they could be out there as early as Q4 this year

The actual production won't match this exactly of course, but there isn't much doubt that ATP will be adding material amounts of production every quarter in 2010 with an exit rate that is multiples of 2009.

Next up.  Telemark production.  Could be this week.

Exciting time to be an ATP shareholder, with the share price yet to realize this production ramp, and 20% of the float short and needing to cover in front of it.
