 Deepwater Gulf of Mexico Exploration

Anadarko's expertise and focused pursuit of large exploration targets in the Gulf of Mexico have made us one of the industry's safest and most successful deepwater explorers. Anadarko has discovered more than 30 fields in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. 

Shenandoah Basin Success

Anadarko’s 2013 Shenandoah-2 appraisal well in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico encountered more than 1,000 net feet of oil pay in multiple high-quality, Lower Tertiary reservoirs. Similar to the initial Shenandoah discovery well, log and pressure data from the Shenandoah-2 well indicated excellent-quality reservoir and fluid properties. This success has established Shenandoah as one of the company’s largest Gulf of Mexico oil discoveries to date.
