Video: Shell's Mars B - Attention - We are About to Open the Well

View the moment production began at Shell’s pioneering Mars B Olympus platform in the Gulf of Mexico. Mars B is the first deep-water project in the Gulf to expand an existing oil and gas field with significant new infrastructure, which should extend the life of the greater Mars basin to 2050 or beyond. Combined future production from Olympus and the original Mars platform is expected to deliver an estimated resource base of 1 billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe).

This Mars B First Oil video will give you a sense of the anticipation, excitement and pride encountered on the road to production. Turning this project into an operating asset took more than 25,000 individuals over 5 years to complete.
