FID reached on Stampede development

Hess Corporation has, together with its project co-owners, reached a final investment decision (FID) to proceed with the development of Stampede, an oil and gas project operated by Hess in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

Discovered in 2005, the Stampede Field is located approximately 115 miles south of Fourchon, La., in the Gulf of Mexico (Green Canyon Blocks 468, 511 and 512). The field is located in approximately 3,500 feet of water, with a reservoir depth of 30,000 feet. The plan initially calls for six subsea production wells and four water injection wells from two subsea drill centers tied back to a Tension Leg Platform (TLP). A two-rig drilling program is planned with the first rig starting operations in the fourth quarter of 2015. First production is expected in 2018.

Gross topsides processing capacity for the project is approximately 80,000 barrels of oil per day and 100,000 barrels of water injection capacity per day. Total estimated recoverable resources for Stampede are estimated in the range of 300–350 million barrels of oil equivalent. The development is estimated to cost approximately $6 billion.

Hess has a 25% working interest and is the operator. Union Oil Company of California, a Chevron subsidiary, Statoil and Nexen Petroleum Offshore U.S.A. Inc. each have a 25% working interest.
