HOUSTON – 2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has won two separate contracts, one by Hess Corp. and a second contract by Enbridge Energy Co., to verify the design, fabrication, and installation phases of the steel catenary risers (SCR) for the Stampede field development in the central US Gulf of Mexico.
The Stampede field is operated by Hess. Enbridge plans to build, own, and operate the oil export pipeline from the Stampede tension leg platform. The subsea development is located in the GoM’s Green Canyon blocks 468, 511, and 512 in water depths of approximately 3,500 ft (1,066 m).
The primary objective of 2H’s verification work is to verify the acceptability of the Stampede SCR design, fabrication methods, and installation activities for both Hess and Enbridge, and ensure that there is consistent adherence to the relevant codes, standards, and specifications.
The Stampede project award follows 2H’s completion of the design, fabrication, and installation verification work for the production SCRs in the Hess-operated Tubular Bells field development last year.
Operator Hess holds a 25% interest in Stampede. Its partners are Union Oil (Chevron) (25%), Statoil (25%), Nexen (25%).
2H’s Houston office will be responsible for the contract and the execution of this work.
