Deepwater Oil Production Growth May Stagnate on Low Prices

April 28 (Bloomberg) — Crude oil output growth from deepwater areas may stagnate because current oil prices make it unprofitable to tap new deposits and large discoveries dwindle, a consultant said.

Production from deepwater blocks grew 67 percent a year between 2005 and 2008 following discoveries off Angola and Nigeria. That beat a growth of 1.3 percent in total crude oil output during the same period.

Global deepwater oil production may peak at 7.5 million barrels a day in 2013, Rodgers said.
