Shell Exploration & Production Company has found hydrocarbons at its Deimos prospect located in approximately 3,000 feet of water in Mississippi Canyon Block 806.
Shell, as operator, has a 72 percent interest in the prospect; BP has a 28 percent interest. Deimos is located adjacent to the huge Mars discovery, which has been producing from a Shell-operated tension leg platform since 1996.
Additional drilling will be required to delineate the actual field potential.
The head of the Voronezh region, Alexander Gusev, confirmed the death of Major General Vladimir Zavadsky.
