Item 4.01 - Changes in Registrant’s Certifying Accountant

The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of ATP Oil & Gas Corporation (“ATP”) annually considers and appoints ATP’s independent accountants. The Company solicited competitive bids from independent accountants to audit the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2008. On April 7, 2008, as a result of the competitive bid process, the Audit Committee appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP to serve as ATP’s independent auditors for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2008. The appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP will be submitted for ratification by ATP’s shareholders at the 2008 Annual Meeting. Concurrently on April 7, 2008, the Audit Committee dismissed Deloitte & Touche LLP (“Deloitte”) as ATP’s independent auditors upon the conclusion of services related to the fiscal year ending December 31, 2007. Deloitte has served as ATP’s independent accountants since 2004.

Deloitte’s audit reports on ATP’s consolidated financial statements as of and for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2007 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, nor were they qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or accounting principles, except for their report on the audit of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, which because of the effects of a material weakness in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting, stated the Company did not maintain an effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2007.

During ATP’s two most recent fiscal years and through April 7, 2008, there was no disagreement with Deloitte on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreement, if not resolved to Deloitte’s satisfaction, would have caused it to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its report on ATP’s consolidated financial statements for such years; there were no reportable events, as listed in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K of the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission; and ATP did not consult PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP with respect to the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on ATP’s consolidated financial statements.

ATP has provided Deloitte with a copy of the foregoing disclosures. Attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this Form 8-K is a copy of Deloitte’s letter dated April 10, 2008.
