Shell Offshore Inc. (Shell), a subsidiary of Shell, has started production at PowerNap, a subsea development in the US Gulf of Mexico with an estimated peak production of 20 000 boe/d.

PowerNap is a subsea tie-back to the Shell-operated Olympus TLP, with three production wells produced through a single insulated 19-mile flowline and high-pressure gas lift capability. It is located in the south-central Mississippi Canyon area approximately 240 km (~150 miles) from New Orleans in about 1280 m (~4200 ft) of water. PowerNap production will be transported to market on the Mars pipeline, which is operated by Shell Pipeline Company LP and co-owned by Shell Midstream Partners, L.P. (71.5%) and BP Midstream Partners LP (28.5%).

“Shell has been producing in the Mars Corridor for more than 25 years, and we continue to find ways to unlock even more value there,” said Zoe Yujnovich, Shell Upstream Director. “PowerNap strengthens a core Upstream position that is critical to achieving our Powering Progress strategy and ensuring we can supply the stable, secure energy resources the world needs today and in the future.”
