This application of enabling technology is expected to increase recovery and advance Chevron’s strategy of maximizing the company’s existing resources in the Gulf of Mexico, the oil company said on Thursday.

“The St. Malo field is a world-class asset that is positioned for highly economic brownfield development,” said Steve Green, President of Chevron North America Exploration and Production.

The waterflood project is Chevron’s first in the deepwater Wilcox trend and is expected to contribute an estimated ultimate recovery of more than 175 million barrels of oil equivalent. It will include two new production wells, three new injector wells and topsides injection equipment for the Jack/St. Malo floating production unit, allowing the company to extend the life of the field.

Located approximately 280 miles south of New Orleans, La., the St. Malo field has an estimated remaining production life of 30 years. Chevron started first production at the Jack/St. Malo project in December 2014.

Chevron, through its subsidiaries, Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and Union Oil Company of California, holds a 51 percent working interest in the St. Malo field, with co-owners MP Gulf of Mexico, LLC (25%) (owned by Murphy Oil Corporation 80% and Petrobras America Inc. 20%), Equinor Gulf of Mexico LLC (21.5%), Exxon Mobil Corporation (1.25%) and Eni Petroleum US LLC (1.25%).
