By OGJ editors

A group led by Anadarko Petroleum Corp. let a contract to FMC Technologies Inc. to provide subsea systems and services for the deepwater Gulf of Mexico Lucius oil and gas project off Texas.

FMC will provide five subsea production trees and two manifolds for Lucius field on Keathley Canyon Block 875 in 7,100 ft of water.

The Lucius unit, about 275 miles southeast of Galveston, Tex., includes parts of Keathley Canyon Blocks 874, 875, 918, and 919. Anadarko, which operates the unit with a 35% working interest, drilled the discovery well in 2009 (OGJ Online, Dec. 15, 2011).

Subsea system deliveries are scheduled to start in the fourth quarter, FMC said.

Lucius development plans call for using a truss spar with a capacity of 80,000 b/d of oil and 450 MMcfd of gas starting in 2014.

Other participants in the Lucius unit include Plains Exploration & Production Co. 23.3%, ExxonMobil Corp. 15%, Apache Deepwater LLC 11.7%, Petroleo Brasileiro SA 9.6%, and Eni SPA 5.4%.
