Thunder Horse production tops 200,000 bbl/day

Posted on 06 January 2009

“The strong ramp-up of production from Thunder Horse is an important milestone as we continue to grow production from our strong portfolio of deepwater assets in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Andy Inglis, BP’s chief executive of exploration and production. “We have had to overcome significant challenges in developing and applying new technology to produce this ultra-deep, high-pressure, high-temperature field. The capability and technology we have developed will be critical for our next phase of offshore projects.”

BP is operator of Thunder Horse with 75% ownership. ExxonMobil has a 25% working interest.
