Shell Begins First Production from World Record Subsea Well
|Tuesday, June 29, 2004
SEPCo completed the Coulomb C-2 and C-3 wells in successive, world record water depths. "These wells represent key industry and Shell firsts," said Gaurdie Banister, Technical Director, Americas Region. "On May 2nd, the C-2 well became the world's deepest water depth completion in 7,565 feet of water. But records are made to be broken, and within 17 days, the C-3 well eclipsed the C-2 record depth by five feet, as it was set in 7,570 feet of water.
"The C-2 well is a Shell deepwater best, having been completed in only 13 days," Banister added "The ability to accomplish these firsts is the result of Shell's extensive experience in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico over the past two decades, as well as its ability to work well with key contractors and vendors to plan and implement projects effectively while reducing cycle times."
