The project is currently in construction stage and is expected to start commercial production in 2024. Final investment decision (FID) of the project was approved in 2021. The Shenandoah conventional oil development will involve the drilling of approximately eight wells and includes semi-submersible and subsea trees.

Field participation details

The field is owned by Beacon Offshore Energy Operating, BOE II Exploration, BOE II Shen and Navitas Petroleum.

Production from Shenandoah

Production from the Shenandoah conventional oil development project is expected to begin in 2024 and is forecast to peak in 2024, to approximately 66 bpd of crude oil and condensate and 30 Mmcfd of natural gas. Based on economic assumptions, the production will continue until the field reaches its economic limit in 2045.

Remaining recoverable reserves

The field is expected to recover 20.71 Mmboe, comprised of 0.27 Mmbbl of crude oil & condensate and 122.62 bcf of natural gas reserves.
