Shell is a top deep-water oil and gas producer in the Gulf of Mexico. Our focus is always on safe, responsible and innovative deep water operations.

Deep-water oil and gas are a vital part of the mix of energy resources.  The Gulf of Mexico is a principal character in America’s energy picture, where Shell has pioneered world-class offshore production assets and been a proud member of the vibrant Gulf Coast community.

We are making progress on a new wave of deep-water projects in the Gulf of Mexico, using innovative approaches to realize a spectrum of opportunities. Most recently, our Appomattox project advanced to construction phase, and our Mars B/Olympus and Cardamom projects achieved first oil production to help meet demand for energy in the US.  .
