Wells offline reduce value in US deepwater Gulf of Mexico

Report summary

Between 2007 and 2013, producing oil and gas wells in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico (GoM) were online an average 79% of the time.  Reducing the amount of time a well is producing decreases NPV and IRR in the long-term by deferring production into the future.  For a large field in deepwater GoM, less than a 10% change in producing days each year leads to as much as 15% change in NPV.
