Steve Pastor, the head of BHP Billiton’s petroleum division, is upbeat about the potential of oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico, including the Trion project and the Wildling discovery. BHP will drill another appraisal well at Trion by the end of 2018, followed by two more in 2019. Pastor also says BHP will participate in the Mexican Government’s next auction of exploration permits in the gulf. He adds that there has been strong interest in BHP’s US shale assets, and the company could potentially swap some onshore shale acreage for offshore conventional oil assets.
