Overview of the Gulf of Mexico
We currently operate nine deep water production hubs, numerous subsea production systems, and one of the largest contracted drilling rig fleets in the Gulf of Mexico. We are also part owner of one producing project in the Gulf of Mexico operated by another oil and gas company.
The core of our daily work in deep water Gulf of Mexico consists of producing oil and gas using our existing production facilities, as well as drilling wells to grow production from our existing fields and to find and develop newly-discovered fields. Our focus is on safely maximizing production from our existing hub, safely developing the next generation of deepwater projects and continuing to be trusted stewards of the environment.
On April 24, Shell announced the final investment decision for Vito, a deep-water development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
