Shell Midstream Partners, L.P. announced that the systems owned by Proteus Oil Pipeline Company LLC (“Proteus”) and Endymion Oil Pipeline Company LLC (“Endymion”) increased volumes of crude oil from the start-up of the Shell-operated Appomattox floating production system via the newly commissioned Mattox Pipeline (“Mattox”), which is majority owned and operated by Shell Pipeline Company LP (“SPLC”). Shell Midstream Partners owns a 10% interest in each of Proteus and Endymion.
“The Gulf of Mexico remains an important part of the US production story – as evidenced by these new volumes,” said Kevin Nichols, CEO, Shell Midstream Partners. “Over the last three years, most of the 19 sanctioned projects across the Gulf of Mexico flow through our systems, giving us the ideal position to capture growth. Our offshore corridor strategy is working – and we are pleased with the resilience and growth that the Gulf of Mexico provides.”
Appomattox, which currently has an expected production of 175 000 boe/d, achieved first oil on 23 May 2019. The Mattox Pipeline is transporting oil from Appomattox into the Proteus and Endymion systems which ultimately connect to onshore markets via the Clovelly, LA storage hub.
