Chevron completes appraisal of “significant” discovery in Gulf of Mexico

Oil major Chevron said it has made a “significant discovery” after the appraisal of the Anchor discovery in the Gulf of Mexico. The original discovery well, which is located 140 miles off the coast of Louisiana, was drilled in late last year to a depth of 33,750feet and encountered 690feet of net oil pay. The appraisal drilling began in June this year and Chevron said complete appraisal of the field will require further delineation wells and technical studies.
