Deep Water

The deep-water era began more than forty years ago when engineers, scientists and explorers came together and reimagined what was possible for offshore oil and gas production in the waters of the US Gulf of Mexico (GoM). With our Cognac platform in 1978, Shell was the first company to produce oil in more than 1000 feet of water. Since this engineering feat that redefined offshore oil and gas development, we have continued to achieve exceptional technological milestones in the design, construction and operation of world-class oil and gas producing assets in varying depths of water.

With two prolific basins in the US and Brazil, an exciting frontier exploration portfolio and a track record of strong operational performance, our Deep Water organization has a significant competitive advantage.  We play a critical role to provide the energy to power people’s lives while using our assets, skills, and experience to help shape the world’s lower carbon energy systems of the future.
