Point Thomson condensate pipeline completion near

ExxonMobil Corp. said it expects work to be completed this winter on a pipeline that will carry condensate from the Point Thomson Unit on Alaska’s North Slope to the Trans-Alaska Pipeline System (TAPS).

The company said condensate production will start at a rate of 10,000 b/d. The pipeline will have capacity of 70,000 b/d.

According to government filings, the elevated, 22-mile, 12-in. pipeline will connect the Point Thomson central production facility with BP’s Badami oil pipeline, which connects with TAPS.

An agreement reached last year to start condensate production by the 2015-16 winter moved leaseholders—which also include BP, ConocoPhillips, Chevron, and Leede—and the state away from a 7-year deadlock over how to develop Point Thomson’s reserves and transport production (OGJ Online, Apr. 9, 2012). The unit is a retrograde condensate reservoir with gas reserves estimated at 8 tcf.

ExxonMobil said Worley Parsons Group Inc., the primary engineering, procurement, and construction management contractor has awarded two subcontracts to CH2M Hill Alaska related to the next phases of development:

• For installation of production system modules, the main components of the permanent Point Thomson facilities. The subcontractor will work with ASRC Energy Services and Delta Construction on field activities beginning in 2014.

• For fabrication and installation of the standby power-generation module, which will provide backup power for the entire facility in 2014.
