In late 2012, Shell purchased approximately 600,000 leased acres and 500 wells producing 21,000 barrels of liquids and 90 million cubic feet of natural gas per day including buying into a 50/50 joint venture to develop an Area of Mutual Interest (AMI) with Anadarko.
In the Delaware Basin, our primary focus is on the Wolfcamp, Bone Springs and Avalon formations. Shell now has 300,000 net acres, 85 percent which is considered core acreage. We currently produce around 31,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day from approximately 400 Shell operated wells and have identified over 5,000 other possible well locations.
We currently have two central processing facilities, with plans to develop additional facilities in 2016 and 2017.We also operate eight saltwater disposal (SWD) facilities, supplemented with third-party commercial SWD services to safely dispose of saltwater produced by our operations.
