Shell and BP announce start-up of Gulf of Mexico development

24 Jun 2021

The Manuel project at the Na Kika platform in the US Gulf of Mexico, jointly owned by energy giants Shell and BP, has started production.

Located approximately 140 miles south-east of New Orleans, the Manuel development includes a new subsea production system for two wells that BP estimates will increase Na Kika’s gross production by 20,100 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day.

Na Kika is one of four BP-operated deepwater production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, including Thunder Horse, Atlantis, and Mad Dog.

The company recently announced it expects its Gulf of Mexico output to grow to more than 400,000 boe per day by 2025.
