Shell announced Dec. 12 it had approved a phased campaign that would deliver production from three Great White wells to the Perdido spar.

In announcing the final investment decision (FID), Shell said the wells are expected to produce up to 22,000 boe/d at peak rates following April 2025 completion of the campaign, Shell said.

“By expanding our Perdido development, we continue to unlock the greatest value from this exceptional resource,” Rich Howe, Shell’s executive vice president for deep water, said in a press release.

The Perdido spar, in 8,000 ft water depth, has been onstream since 2010. Its production capacity is 125,000 boe/d at peak rates.

Shell operates the Great White unit with 33.34% interest on behalf of partners Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and BP Exploration & Production Inc., each with 33.33% interest.

Shell operates the Perdido spar with 35% interest on behalf of partners, with Chevron with 37.5%, 3C Perdido Holdings LLC holding with 26.5% and BP with 1%.
