Perdido, the deepest offshore oil platform in the world

18th January 2015 - Facts
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, moored in ~2,450 meters (8,000 feet) of water, is the world’s deepest direct vertical access spar. The spar 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.
