Production is now underway from Shell’s Cardamom development, the second major deepwater facility that the company has brought online in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico this year, following the start-up of Mars B in February. Oil from the Cardamom subsea development is piped through Shell’s Auger platform. When Cardamom reaches full output of 50,000 boed, Auger’s total production capacity will increase to 130,000 boed. Since its first production in 1994, Auger has received several upgrades to process additional production from new discoveries. Cardamom is Auger’s seventh subsea development. Cardamom field is 225 mi southwest of New Orleans, La., in water more than 2,700 ft deep.
