Shell’s Appomattox hull arrives in USA

Oil giant Shell shared several images last Friday through its social media channels of the Appomattox hull reaching its destination.

The hull was delivered to Ingleside, Texas, by Cosco’s heavy lifter Xin Guang Hua. Now that the hull has arrived in the U.S., a new phase of construction, entailing the hull’s integration with the topsides, can begin.

Once completed, the Appomattox platform will be installed at Shell’s Appomattox field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The final investment decision for the project was made back in July 2015.

The Appomattox project will consist of a semi-submersible, four-column production host platform, a subsea system featuring six drill centers, 15 producing wells, and five water injection wells. The platform will be moored in approximately 7,200 feet (2,195 meters) of water.

The development will initially produce from the Appomattox and Vicksburg fields, with average peak production estimated to reach approximately 175,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day.

Shell has a 79 percent interest in the Appomattox and Vicksburg fields with Nexen Petroleum Offshore U.S.A. Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of CNOOC Limited, as its partner with the remaining 21% interest.
