BP unlocks a billion oil barrels in Gulf of Mexico with new technology
“BP’s Gulf of Mexico business is key to our strategy of growing production of advantaged high-margin oil.”
BP said it has discovered two new oilfields in the Gulf of Mexico and has identified an additional billion barrels of oil at an existing field thanks to new seismic technology.
They also plan to expand production at its Atlantis oilfield in the Gulf of Mexico, consolidating its status as the largest oil producer in that region.
