Fabrication of the platform jacket for the Hummer development project in the Gulf of Mexico has been completed, Petsec Energy informed on Tuesday.
The platform jacket is a 4 pile, 3 slot structure designed to be installed in water depth of 215 feet over the Main Pass Block 270 #3 Hummer discovery well, which was drilled in late 2015.
According to Petsec, installation of the platform jacket is planned for mid-August 2016.
Following jacket installation, Petsec said a rig is scheduled to arrive on location to undertake the next phase of development which is to tie back the subsea suspended #3 well to the jacket and complete and test the well
The company anticipates that test results will be available in September, or early October 2016. Following testing results, the well will be suspended for future production while the platform deck, facilities and pipelines are fabricated and installed. Current estimates for first production are mid-year 2017.
