USA: Technip to Build Truss Spar Hull for Anadarko's Lucius Development

USA Technip to Build Truss Spar Hull for Anadarko's Lucius Development

Technip  was awarded a lump sum contract by Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for the engineering, construction and transport of a 23,000 ton truss Spar hull for their 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.

Lucius will be the seventh Spar Technip has delivered to Anadarko.

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.

Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas, will provide the overall project management. The detailed hull design and fabrication will be carried out by Technip’s yard in Pori, Finland.

This Spar will be the fifteenth delivered by Technip (out of eighteen worldwide) and thus demonstrates Technip’s leadership in Spars and our ability to provide solutions for ultra-deep water developments. This also confirms the expertise and track record of our Pori yard to deliver state-of-the-art platforms.

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.
