VIDEO: Topsides on Anadarko’s Lucius installed

Hundreds of people worked around the clock to successfully set up the 10,000-ton topsides on Anadarko’s floating Lucius truss spar.

The successful setting of the topsides brought together a tapestry of components built in Orange, Texas; Houma, La and Ingleside, Texas, among other locations worldwide.

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 second 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.
