Shell reels in Blacktip in Western GoM

Report summary

On 24 April 2019, Shell (52.4% and operator) announced the Blacktip discovery, a potentially large Wilcox field in the Western Gulf of Mexico Perdido belt. The lease is unitized across 3.5 Alaminos Canyon blocks with partners Chevron (20%), Equinor (19.1%) and Repsol (8.5%). The blocks are located about 62 km (39 miles) northeast of the Perdido platform, outside of tieback range. We estimate the discovery would need to be at least 200 mmboe (recoverable) to commercially justify a new platform.
