The decision comes 2 months after UK shale operator Cuadrilla Resources halted stimulation work at its Preston New Road site in Lancashire because of a magnitude 2.9 seismic event. The UK shale operator will move forward with fracturing and testing its second well at its Lancashire site despite strict constraints on induced seismicity that hampered fracturing work on its first well.
The A-frame is DNV certified. The deferments are the latest actions Shell has taken in response to record low crude prices. The project aims to contribute an estimated ultimate recovery of more than 175 MMboe from one of the company’s signature deepwater projects in the US Gulf of Mexico. The subsea tieback is expected to start up in 2021. This is Shell’s second major development on a tieback in the US Gulf of Mexico, following Kaikias’ startup in May.
The Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement reported about 14% of oil production and about 14% of natural gas production remains shut in following Tropical Storm Barry. Offshore personnel are reboarding Gulf of Mexico platforms, oil and gas production begins recovery. All 20 dynamically positioned rigs have returned to pre-storm locations. Operators' reports of evacuated personnel remain unchanged from yesterday. The Gulf of Mexico disturbance, Barry, made landfall today near Intracoastal City, Louisiana, and weakened to a tropical storm.
Forecasts are lowered for levels of E&P, budgets, and project sanctioning. The economic impact report looked at scenarios involving current policies and potential bans on both drilling permits and offshore leases. The A-frame is DNV certified. Both platforms offshore assets were shut in following a leak in ExxonMobil's 100,000 B/D pipeline system. Subsea 7’s installation services contract is the latest Chevron award for its Anchor field project.
A VLCC converted to FPSO, Liza Destiny has a production capacity of 120,000 B/D of oil. The startup of the deepwater field marks the beginning of production from the massive Stabroek Block, which contains an estimated 6 billion BOE. ExxonMobil estimates that at least 5 FPSOs will be producing more than 750,000 BOPD from the Stabroek Block by 2025. As construction continues, SBM Offshore secured the $1.14 billion needed to finance work on the vessel. Liza Unity is scheduled for deployment at ExxonMobil's Liza Phase 2 development offshore Guyana.
The amount of oil and gas resources approved for development last year surpassed 20 billion BOE, the highest level seen since 2011. Telltale signs have emerged that we are entering a new offshore investment cycle. The project aims to contribute an estimated ultimate recovery of more than 175 MMboe from one of the company’s signature deepwater projects in the US Gulf of Mexico. Following a 42-day journey from Singapore, the Liza Destiny has arrived at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, where it is expected to produce up to 120,000 gross boe/D from the ExxonMobil-operated deepwater project upon startup. Phase 1 production from the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico field is expected to reach 30,000 BOPD.
Aker BP expects the unmanned facility, a further development of the Valhall field in the Norwegian North Sea, to recover 60 million BOE. Startup is expected sometime this fall. Following a 42-day journey from Singapore, the Liza Destiny has arrived at the Stabroek Block offshore Guyana, where it is expected to produce up to 120,000 gross boe/D from the ExxonMobil-operated deepwater project upon startup. Decommissioning and abandonment comes with its share of unexpected surprises, but many of those surprises could be avoided merely through better planning and care. These balls have the potential to alter how pipeline inspections are done, and a consortium of pipeline operators and industry experts in North Dakota is examining just how well this emerging technology can handle the small-diameter pipelines in the area.
