Offline wells reduce value in US deepwater Gulf

Wood Mackenzie recently studied the number of days of production per month for more than 1,200 wells in deepwater Gulf of Mexico between 2007 and 2013. Production wells are thought of as flowing more or less consistently. However, these wells can be shut-in for numerous reasons including inclement weather, equipment failure, and on-going maintenance drilling programs like workovers, side tracks, and recompletions. Based on the study, producing oil and gas wells in deepwater GoM were online on average only 79% of the time - less than 10 months in any given year.
