17 May 2022
TotalEnergies, through its affiliate TotalEnergies E&P USA, Inc., announces the sanction of the Ballymore development, located 120 kilometers off the coast of Louisiana in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
TotalEnergies holds a working interest of 40% in Ballymore. Co-owner Chevron U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, holds a 60% working interest as operator.
The Ballymore field will be developed through 3 production wells, tied back to the Chevron-operated Blind Faith Floating Production Unit. First Oil is expected in 2025 with a capacity of 75,000 barrels of oil per day. By utilizing existing infrastructure, the project ensures the lowest development costs and lower emission intensity.
"Sanctioning the Ballymore field development, only four years after the discovery, is the result of our exploration efforts in the Gulf of Mexico, said David Mendelson, Senior Vice President Americas of TotalEnergies Exploration & Production. Thanks to its tie-back development concept, this decision fits TotalEnergies’ strategy of focusing on oil projects with low breakeven and low emissions.”
