Deep Gulf Energy II LLC (DGE) has let a lump-sum contract to Technip SA to develop its Odd Job field on Mississippi Canyon Blocks 214 and 215 in the Gulf of Mexico. The ultradeepwater development lies offshore New Orleans in 4,800 ft of water.
Technip’s scope will include project management and engineering services, installation of 23 km of pipe-in-pipe flowlines, and 2 km of steel catenary riser. The company will also design, fabricate, and install an in-line sled and flowline end termination.
The offshore installation is expected to completed by summer 2016, and will be performed with Technip’s Beep Blue ultradeepwater pipelay and subsea construction vessel.
DGE operates Odd Job field and has several fields in development nearby. SOB II is on Mississippi Canyon Blocks 387 and 431, and Marmalard slightly to southwest on Blocks 255 and 256.
Wood Mackenzie Ltd. has described Odd Job field as a small oil and gas discovery. The field will be developed as a subsea tieback to the nearby Delta House FPS (OGJ Online, Apr. 17, 2015). Start of production is expected late in 2016.
