Video: Perdido – The World’s Deepest Offshore Oil Drilling and Production Platform

Perdido is the world’s deepest offshore oil drilling and production platform. Moored in 2,450 meters (8,000 feet) of water in the Gulf of Mexico, it opened up a new frontier in deep-water oil and gas production.

perdido Perdido is also the world’s deepest direct vertical access spar and acts as a hub for and enables development of three fields – Great White, Tobago, and Silvertip. It gathers, processes and exports production from water depths of around 2,300 meters (7,500-9,500 feet).

Tobago, in ~2,925 meters (9,596 feet) of water, is the world’s deepest subsea completion. Following first oil, Perdido has a peak annual production of 100,000 barrels of oil per day and 200 million cubic feet of gas per day.

Perdido is one of the most challenging deep-water projects of Shell, leaders in deep-water exploration and production in the Gulf of Mexico.
