Lucius: From design to first oil (Video)

Anadarko, one of the largest independent leaseholders and producers in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, has launched a video, or better yet, a movie, showing a long, but interesting process of bringing its Lucius development into production.

The film presents the project from its early beginnings and design selection, through construction of the Lucius production platform, to its first oil in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Final Investment Decision (FID) for the project was made in December 2011.

Construction of the platform was carried out in two parts: Lower, truss spar, was made by Technip in Finland, and the topside was built in Texas.

The Lucius truss spar, Anadarko’s largest, is today located in 7100 feet of water, in Keathley Canyon 875, 236 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. First oil from the platform started flowing three years after the FID, in January 2015.

In its first quarter results for 2015, Anadarko said it continued to ramp up production at the Lucius spar toward its design rate of 80,000 barrels of oil per day.
