LLOG Exploration Co. LLC, Covington, La., and joint venture partner, Blackstone Energy Partners, announced the Delta House floating production system on Mississippi Canyon Block 254 achieved production of 80,000 b/d.
LLOG recently brought the ninth well on production several weeks ahead of schedule and two additional wells were expected to be brought on production to the FPS in 2016.
The FPS is designed for peaking capacity of 100,000 b/d and 240 MMcfd of gas with no redundancy of key rotating equipment. Delta House FPS was built, installed, and put on stream in 3 years. Production started in April 2015.
“The startup and ramp up of the Delta House FPS has gone exceptionally well,” said Scott Gutterman, LLOG Exploration president and chief executive officer. “The FPS uptime has averaged in excess of 99% since production was initiated which we believe is best in class for similarly sized facilities.”
