A joint venture of Shell Pipeline Co. LP and Genesis Energy LP reported that its Odyssey Pipeline System transported the first crude oil production from the Delta House platform in the Mississippi Canyon protraction area of the Gulf of Mexico.
Production began earlier this month at the Delta House semisubmersible floating production system operated and partly owned by LLOG Exploration Co. LLC (OGJ Online, Apr. 17, 2014).
The Delta House platform is a deep-water floating production system with subsea ties to three Mississippi Canyon fields.
Odyssey, which is operated by Shell, is a 120-mile network of crude oil pipelines varying 12 to 20 in. in diameter. The pipeline has the capacity to deliver as much as 220,000 b/d.
