Royal Dutch Shell, through its subsidiary Shell Offshore has announced that production has started at the Shell-operated Appomattox floating production system months ahead of schedule, opening a new frontier in the deep-water US Gulf of Mexico.

According to Shell, Appomattox, which currently has an expected production of 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, is the first commercial discovery now brought into production in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico Norphlet formation.

“That Appomattox was safely brought online ahead of schedule and far under budget is a testament to our ongoing commitment to drive down costs through efficiency improvements during execution,” Royal Dutch Shell Upstream Director Andy Brown said on 23 May. “Appomattox creates a core long-term hub for Shell in the Norphlet through which we can tie back several already discovered fields as well as future discoveries,” he added.
