Chevron has announced the sanction of a waterflood project in the St. Malo field. 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 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. 'With our leading technology, experienced workforce and broad portfolio, we're delivering value in the Gulf of Mexico.'

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 us to extend the life of the field.

Located approx. 280 miles south of New Orleans, La., the St. Malo field has an estimated remaining production life of 30 years.
