Anadarko’s Lucius Spar En Route to Gulf of Mexico

Last Friday, Technip and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation held the Lucius Spar sail away ceremony.

The christening ceremony took place in Technip’s yard in Pori, Finland. Thierry Pilenko, Technip’s Chairman and CEO, as well as Anadarko’s Senior Vice President for International and Deepwater Operations, Doug Lawler, and Anadadarko’s Vice President for Worldwide Projects, Don Vaderman, were  present to celebrate the event. The 23,000-ton Spar will be on its way to the US Gulf of Mexico in coming weeks.

Upon arrival on the location the spar will be moored at the Lucius project in approximately 7,100 feet (2,165 meters) of water depth in the US Gulf of Mexico, with first oil being scheduled in 2014.

The Lucius truss spar floating production facility will have a nameplate capacity of 80,000 barrels of oil per day and 450 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

This Spar is the fifteenth delivered by Technip. The Lucius production unit will be jointly owned by Anadarko (35%), Plains E&P (23.3%) ExxonMobil (15%) Apache (11.7%), Petrobras (9.6%) and Eni (5.4%).

Technip has already delivered 6 Spars to Anadarko: Neptune, Nansen, Boomvang, Gunnison, Red Hawk and Constitution.
