Shell Makes FID for PowerNap Subsea Tie-Back in GoM

Shell Offshore, a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell, has made the final investment decision (FID) for the PowerNap deepwater project in the US Gulf of Mexico.

PowerNap is a subsea tie-back to the Shell-operated Olympus production hub.

The project is expected to start production in late 2021 and produce up to 35,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) at peak rates.

It  is anticipated to have a forward-looking break-even price of less than $35 per barrel and is currently estimated to contain more than 85 million barrels of oil equivalent recoverable resources, the company explained.

“PowerNap further strengthens Shell’s leading position in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Wael Sawan, Shell’s Upstream director. “It demonstrates the depth of our portfolio of deepwater growth options, and our ability to fully leverage our existing infrastructure to unlock value.”
