Perdido is the deepest floating oil platform in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters (8040 feet) operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico USA.
The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is almost as tall as the Eiffel Tower.
The platform has three decks or topsides which support the oil and gas processing units, a drilling rig and living quarters for the workers.
The oil and gas fields beneath the platform lie in a geological formation holding resources estimated at 3-15 billion barrels of oil equivalent. At peak production, Perdido processes 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day, and 200 million cubic feet of gas.
The twenty-two oil wells that the Perdido extracts oil from are connected to a 44 kilometre (27 mile) network of pipelines on the ocean floor that link it to five flexible pipes called risers.
