Contract let for Hibernia southern extension

HOUSTON, May 13
-- Hibernia Management & Development Co. Ltd. has let a contract to Technip for work associated with the Hibernia southern extension off Newfoundland and Labrador.

HMDC received approval last year to develop the Hibernia Southern Extension Unit through the Hibernia platform, on production since 1997 in 90 m of water about 315 km offshore.

The project will include as many as 10 wells—five oil producers drilled from the platform and five subsea water injectors drilled from a semisubmersible rig through a subsea template 7 km southeast of the platform.

HMDC earlier let a contract to FMC Technologies Inc. for as many as six subsea injection trees and wellheads, a manifold, and associated control systems.

ExxonMobil Canada, lead shareholder in HMDC, estimates the southern extension will recover 140 million boe of hydrocarbons, with target peak production of 50,000 b/d gross. It reported average Hibernia field production last year of 154,000 b/d of oil.

Other interests in HMDC are Chevron Canada Resources 26.875%, Suncor 20%, Canada Hibernia Holding Corp. 8.5%, Murphy Oil 6.5%, and Statoil Canada Ltd. 5%.
