VIDEO: Anadarko Installs Lucius Spar

Anadarko’s Lucius spar facility was installed in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico’s Keathley Canyon Block 875, offshore Corpus Christi, Texas.

The 80,000-barrel-per-day facility will produce oil and natural gas resources from deepwater fields located in more than 7,100 feet of water depth. This video illustrates the installation and setting of the sub-cellar deck, which paves the way for the installation of the facility topsides. This massive deepwater facility has provided employment for well over 1,000 people around the world from Pori, Finland to Orange, Texas, to Houma, Louisiana among other locations.

The Lucius project is located offshore approximately 380km southwest of Port Fourchon, Louisiana with a water depth at approximately 2,160m. Anadarko and co-venturers made a Final Investment Decision (FID) to develop this project in  December 2011, and the first production of crude oil and natural gas is expected to start in the latter half of 2014.

Crude oil and natural gas pumped from the Lucius project will be processed with a truss spar floating facility (Spar) with the capacity to produce in excess of 80,000 barrels of oil per day and 450million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Processed crude oil and natural gas will then be exported to the onshore facilities in Louisiana via a subsea pipeline.
