Fossil Energy – Gulf of Mexico
Shell said on Wednesday it has taken a final investment decision on the Dover exploration field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Shell plans to develop the Dover project as a subsea tieback to the Shell-operated Appomattox offshore production platform, with two production wells produced through a 17.5-mile flowline and riser.
The Dover project is expected to start production in late 2024 or early 2025 and produce up to 21,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd) at peak rates.
Appomattox is Shell’s largest floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico, with a 79% ownership.
