The 23,000-ton Spar will be on its way to the US Gulf of Mexico in coming weeks.

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.
