BP announces discovery in Gulf of Mexico

RNS Number : 8310V

press release



18 December, 2013


BP announces significant discovery

in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico


Discovery at Gila prospect is latest discovery in the Paleogene, highlighting BP's exploration momentum and commitment to US Gulf of Mexico 


BP announced today it has made a significant oil discovery at its Gila prospect, which it co-owns with ConocoPhillips, in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico. This is BP's third discovery in recent years in the emerging Paleogene trend in the Gulf of Mexico and reflects the company's ongoing commitment to the US offshore region. 


BP has previously announced two other Paleogene discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico - Kaskida in 2006 and Tiber in 2009.


The Gila discovery was made by an exploration well on Keathley Canyon Block 93, about 300 miles southwest of New Orleans, in approximately 4,900 feet of water.


The well, which penetrated multiple Paleogene-aged reservoir sands, was drilled to a total depth of 29,221 feet. Appraisal drilling, including completion of drilling through the Paleocene section, will be required to determine the size and potential commerciality of the discovery.


"The Gila discovery is a further sign that momentum is returning to BP's drilling operations and well execution in the Gulf of Mexico," said Richard Morrison, Regional President of BP's Gulf of Mexico business. 


Mike Daly, BP's Global Head of Exploration, said: "Gila continues our successful drill out of the prolific Paleogene play system in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Subject to successful appraisal, Gila, Tiber and Kaskida together offer the potential for significant future oil developments in the Keathley Canyon area."


BP owns a majority interest in the Gila discovery which is located approximately 25 miles west of Tiber, also located in the Keathley Canyon area. The lease for Keathley Canyon Block 93 was acquired in the Western Gulf of Mexico Lease OCS Sale 187 in 2003. 


BP and its heritage companies have been at work in the Gulf of Mexico since the 1950s, and they have been exploring in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico for more than a quarter of a century.
