BP, Technip spar pact includes Mad Dog work

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, May 3
-- BP Exploration & Production Inc. has entered an agreement with Technip for spar technology covering a second phase of development of Mad Dog oil and gas field.

The 10-year master agreement covers design, procurement, and construction of hulls and mooring systems for spars to be installed in the Gulf of Mexico. It also covers design of top tension risers and dry tree units.

Technip said the agreement includes pre-front end engineering design for the Mad Dog Phase 2 spar. That work has begun. Front-end engineering design for the project is to begin in this year’s second half.

Mad Dog produces through a truss spar moored in 4,500 ft of water on Green Canyon Block 782 about 100 miles south of Grand Isle, La., with capacity to process 80,000 b/d of oil and 60 MMcfd of gas.

Since placing the field on production in 2005, BP has appraised a southern extension in 5,100 ft of water (OGJ, July 26, 2009, Newsletter).

BP holds a 60.5% working interest in Mad Dog. Other partners are BHP Billiton 23.9% and Chevron Corp. 15.6%.
