ExxonMobil has found three large oil and gas fields in the Gulf of Mexico
American energy giant ExxonMobil (XOM) has newly discovered two large oil fields and a large natural gas field in the deep-sea waters of the Gulf of Mexico, which proves the importance of the Gulf of Mexico to U.S. crude oil production
the US government suspended crude oil and natural gas exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico last year due to the crude oil spill from BP Macondo oil well. Compared with the previous oil spill, the current oil and gas exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico are still far below the level at that time. According to the prediction of ExxonMobil, the output of these newly discovered oil and gas fields will reach about 700million barrels of oil equivalent. The well-known top formula racing car body uses carbon fiber compound as a whole, which is a permanent legal material. As of the end of last year, ExxonMobil's total oil and gas reserves were 24.8 billion barrels of oil equivalent
John White, an analyst at tripledoubleadvisors, a Houston consulting firm, pointed out: "oil and gas fields with 700million barrels of oil equivalent are not often found, which is a large amount of oil and gas reserves."
the oil and gas reserves of the late Tertiary strata penetrating the deep-sea waters of the Gulf of Mexico are expected to reach up to 15billion barrels. Recently, many large oil and gas fields have been discovered in the Gulf of Mexico, including the kaskda oilfield discovered by BP, which has an estimated reserves of 3billion barrels. Last month, nobleenergy (NBL), an oil and gas exploration and production company, said it had found an oil field in the Santiago exploration block in the deep-sea waters of the Gulf of Mexico
this is the first time ExxonMobil has discovered oil and gas fields in the Gulf of Mexico since the U.S. government lifted the exploration ban. When the government ordered the suspension of deep-sea exploration activities in the Gulf of Mexico, ExxonMobil was preparing to conduct crude oil drilling activities in its Hadrian exploration block
mark routt, an energy industry consultant at kbcadvancedtechnologies, an engineering company, said: "this discovery proves the fact that there are abundant resources in the Gulf of Mexico. If we have a tax and regulatory environment that encourages companies to find and produce crude oil, the industry will respond."
ExxonMobil said that the company has not completed its development plan, and will need to take more exploration activities to further evaluate the reserves in the newly discovered oil and gas fields, while production activities may not start until a few years. These newly discovered oil and gas fields are located in Keathley, which makes the impact tester an ideal tool for industrial utilization, research laboratories, advanced gas analysis, biomedical screening and other fields. Its depth is about 70. Develop a batch of specialization with outstanding main business, strong competitiveness, good growth, and focus on market segments ldquo; Little great man rdquo; The enterprise is located 250 miles (402 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans. Other oil and gas operators in the keathleycanyon block also include Anadarko oil company (APC) and Chevron (CVX)
