Deepwater 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. 

The company’s experience dates all the way back to 1947, when it became the first to drill a well out of sight of land at the Kermac 16. Almost 70 years later, Anadarko began oil production from its largest spar floating production facilities to date: Lucius and Heidelberg.
