HOUSTON, Apr. 17 -- Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has let a contract to Intec Engineering to perform the conceptual engineering and front-end engineering and design study phases of a proposed single-well tieback in the Gulf of Mexico Green Canyon area from Block 606 to Anadarko's K2 Unit on Block 562.

The flowline will connect to K2 at an existing connection at the south fault block. The addition to the K2 Unit will be controlled from the Marco Polo platform on Block 608, which also is operated by Anadarko.

Intec will provide flow assurance analysis and operability planning, system design and vender coordination for the flowline, manifolds, jumpers, subsea tree, and production control system. Intec also will assist in the regulatory and permitting process.

Last month, Anadarko agreed to sell a 23.2% portion of its interest in the K2 Unit for $1.2 billion to two undisclosed companies (OGJ Online, Mar. 13, 2007).

K2 currently averages 37,100 boe/d of production from six wells. Anadarko retains a 41.8% working interest in K2 and serves as operator.
