Royal Dutch Shell has announced a “significant new oil discovery” in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico that has the potential to be a hub.

The discovery, located in the Appomattox prospect in 2,200 metres of water, follows three notable discoveries by Shell in the Gulf last year.

Shell is operator of the prospect, holding an 80 per cent interest, with partner Nexen holding 20 per cent.
