Shell Gulf of Mexico

Shell in large US GoM find


THE HAGUE, May 24, 2018 – Shell has struck more than 244 metres of hydrocarbons net pay in the Gulf of Mexico, the super-major announced on Thursday.


The Dover deepwater discovery in the Norphlet geologic play is situated around 21 kilometres from the Appomattox semi-submersible host platform and “is considered an attractive potential tieback,” Shell added in its statement.

“Dover showcases our expertise in discovering new, commercial resources in a heartland helping deliver our deepwater growth priority,” said Andy Brown, Shell’s upstream director. “By focusing on near-field exploration opportunities in the Norphlet, we are adding to our resource base in a prolific basin that will be anchored by the Appomattox development.”
