Dominion taps Weatherford for Devil's Tower spar riser installation

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, July 11 -- Dominion Exploration & Production Inc. has selected Weatherford International Ltd. to install the production risers for the Devil's Tower dry-tree truss spar in the Gulf of Mexico.

Work on the risers for the deepwater floating production system will be conducted in 5,610 ft. of water on Mississippi Canyon Block 773. The first riser installation is scheduled for first quarter 2004.

Dominion plans eight dry-tree spar wells, which are tied back from the sea floor with the production risers. All risers will be installed using Weatherford's Stabberless method of running casing and tubing. The top tension, single barrier riser design is similar to risers Weatherford has installed for other deepwater operators recently.

Dominion, with 75% interest, is operator of Devil's Tower and partner Pioneer Natural Resources USA Inc. holds the other 25%
