Anadarko Petroleum has confirmed its plans to develop the significant Shenandoah discovery in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico.
The US independent plans to develop the find using a semi-submersible platform designed by floater specialist SBM Offshore.
Anadarko confirmed its decision to go with a semisub, but stressed that more work must be done before a final investment decision can be taken.
“While we, along with our partners, continue working towards determining the commerciality of Shenandoah, we have chosen a semi-submersible concept to support the potential development,” a spokesman told Upstream.
“SBM will continue with FEED, while we continue appraisal drilling to further delineate the opportunity and work towards a future sanctioning decision.”
The concept selection comes after a lengthy — and ongoing — process of evaluating the Shenandoah discovery, as well as possible development scenarios for the complex Lower Tertiary field.
Netherlands-based SBM, which will be moving forward with front-end engineering and design work, beat out rival Technip for the hull FEED prize.www.upstreamonline.com/live/1446263/a...
