Mars B First Oil: Integrated & Delivered
Feb 04, 2014
Shell has begun production from the Mars B development through Olympus -- seventh, and largest, floating deep-water platform it has developed in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mars B is the first deep-water project in the Gulf to expand an existing oil and gas field with significant new infrastructure, which should extend the life of the greater Mars basin to 2050 or beyond.
Combined future production from Olympus and the original Mars platform is expected to deliver an estimated resource base of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe).
