Shell in New Gulf of Mexico Find

Shell Offshore has made a large, deepwater, exploration discovery in the Norphlet geologic play in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico with its Dover well. 

The Dover discovery is Shell’s sixth in the Norphlet and encountered more than 800 net feet of pay (244 meters).

The discovery is located approximately 13 miles from the Appomattox host and is considered an attractive potential tieback. Shell’s Appomattox host has now arrived on location in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and is expected to start production before the end of 2019, the company noted.

Dover showcases our expertise in discovering new, commercial resources in a heartland helping deliver our deep water growth priority,” said Andy Brown, Upstream director for Royal Dutch Shell. “By focusing on near-field exploration opportunities in the Norphlet, we are adding to our resource base in a prolific basin that will be anchored by the Appomattox development.”
