Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX) today announced a significant oil discovery at the Anchor prospect in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico. Anchor is Chevron's second discovery in the deepwater Gulf in less than a year.
"The Anchor discovery, along with the previously announced Guadalupe discovery, are significant finds for us in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. We had one of our best years with the drill bit in 2014, reporting more than 30 discoveries worldwide and adding an estimated one billion barrels of new resources to our holdings," said Jay Johnson, senior vice president, Upstream, Chevron Corporation.
The American oil and natural gas industry depends on Louisiana. It depends on our friends, families and neighbors who work on the rigs and at the ports to provide fuels that Louisiana and the rest of country needs in constant supply. Thanks to recent developments in American innovation we are doing that work even better and at a bigger scale today than ever before.
While millions of Americans struggle to find work in other parts of the nation, Louisiana residents proudly claim one of the lowest average unemployment rates in the country, fueled largely by the demands of our productive petrochemical industry. Recent technological innovations have increased deepwater activity at an impressive pace, making the Gulf of Mexico the fastest growing offshore market in the world. If you are able to work, have a skill and appropriate training, and are drug-free, there is likely a job for you at a Louisiana port, shipyard, fabrication yard, refinery, pipeline or oilfield service company.
