Shell’s floating production, storage and offloading facility called Stones is the world’s deepest oil and gas project. Operating in 9,500 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico, the facility connects to subsea infrastructure that produces oil and gas from reservoirs nearly 30,000 feet below sea level.

GCOOS is excited to be partnering with the Gulf Research Program and Shell to support a pilot effort to convert an existing ocean mooring owned by Shell into the first long-term deep ocean observatory in the Gulf of Mexico.
