Oil major BP said on Jan. 12 it doubled crude output from its Thunder Horse project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GoM).
Production at the platform ramped up to more than 200,000 boe/d for the first time in more than a year, the company said, from output of about 100,000 boe/d in May.
The Thunder Horse platform, about 150 miles southeast of New Orleans, can produce up to 250,000 bbl/d of oil and up to 200 MMcf/d.
The 15-year old platform is operated by BP, which has a 75% stake, while Exxon Mobil holds the remaining interest.
The GoM, the country's primary offshore source of oil and gas, produced 1.7 MMbbl/d of oil in 2021, mostly from deepwater fields, official data showed.
