The Gulf of Mexico is a principal character in America’s energy picture and a heartland for Shell, where we employ approximately 1,600 full-time employees and contract staff that operate our deep water facilities in accordance to Shell’s health, safety, environment and social performance standards. We are a proud member of the vibrant and diverse Gulf Coast community.

In the Gulf of Mexico, Shell produces approximately 150 million barrels of oil equivalent per year, which makes up about 50 percent of Shell’s total US oil and gas production. Shell was named top producer in the Gulf of Mexico’s Outer Continental Shelf for the most recent year of 2012 by the US Department of Interior.

Looking into the future, we look forward to continue our pioneering legacy in deep water and help usher in the next generation of deep water developments using our technology, know-how and innovative approaches. We will also continue our deliberate focus on safe and environmentally responsible deep water operations.
