Shell takes investment decision for phased wells campaign at Perdido in US Gulf of Mexico

Moscow, December 13 - Neftegaz.RU. Shell Offshore Inc., a subsidiary of Shell plc (Shell), announced the Final Investment Decision (FID) for a phased campaign to deliver three wells in the Great White unit designed to boost production at the Shell-operated Perdido spar in the US Gulf of Mexico (GoM).

After completion of this campaign in April 2025, these wells collectively are expected to produce up to 22,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) at peak rates.

R. Howe, Shell’s Executive Vice President for Deep Water said:

  • Shell is the leading operator in the US Gulf of Mexico, and we continue to find ways to build on that position;
  • by expanding our Perdido development, we continue to unlock the greatest value from this exceptional resource.

This investment underscores Shell’s long-term commitment to the US Gulf of Mexico, where production is essential to ensuring a reliable and secure supply of energy.
Additionally, production in the US Gulf of Mexico has among the lowest greenhouse gas (GHG) intensity in the world for producing oil.

Perdido, a production spar in the US Gulf of Mexico, began production in 2010. It is located approximately 200 miles south of Galveston, Texas in about 8,000 feet of water.
The wells will be drilled in the Great White unit, where Shell Offshore Inc. is operator with 33.34% WI, with Chevron U.S.A. Inc. holding 33.33% WI, BP Exploration & Production Inc. holding 33.33% WI.
This phased campaign includes three wells which combined are expected to produce up to 22 kboe/d at peak rates.
Shell Offshore Inc. is operator of the Perdido Regional Host with 35% Working Interest (WI) in Perdido, with Chevron U.S.A. Inc. holding 37.5% WI, 3C Perdido Holdings LLC holding 26.5% and BP Exploration & Production Inc. holding 1% WI.
Perdido’s production capacity is 125 kboe/d at peak rates.

Shell is the leading operator in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico for oil and gas production.
In addition to operations in Brazil and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Shell’s deep-water portfolio includes our Argentina shales organization and frontier exploration opportunities in Suriname, Sao Tome & Principe, Argentina and Namibia.
