Private equity player ArcLight Capital Partners has bought a 26.5 per cent stake in the deepwater Perdido Platform in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) from BP.
The Perdido Regional Host is the only deepwater production facility serving the Gulf of Mexico’s Perdido Foldbelt Trend, one of the most prolific and strategic plays in the Gulf of Mexico.
The facility, which is operated by Shell Offshore., is an offshore spar moored in southern Alaminos Canyon in approximately 8,000 feet of water, located approximately six miles from the US/Mexican maritime border and 220 miles south of Galveston, Texas.
“We are very pleased to complete another transaction with BP, our third in the last six months .This investment in Perdido is a continuation of our strategy of identifying and executing quality investment opportunities in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Perdido represents a world class infrastructure asset supported by strong, predictable cash flows from supermajor counterparties producing from established fields,” said Dan Revers, managing partner and founder of ArcLight.
