Heidelberg Truss Spar on Its Way to Green Canyon

Anadarko informed that Heidelberg truss spar has started its journey from Ingleside, Texas, to Green Canyon block 860 in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.

In February this year, Technip’s construction yard in Pori, Finland built and delivered a 23,000-ton truss spar hull for Heidelberg field development.

The Heidelberg development is located approximately 140 miles offshore Louisiana, and consists of Green Canyon blocks 859, 860, 903, 904 and 948, scheduled for first oil in 2016.

The Heidelberg Spar, with a capacity to produce more than 80,000 barrels of oil and 2.3 million cubic meters of natural gas per day, will be moored in 1620 meters of water.

Technip’s operating center in Houston, Texas provided the overall project management and engineering.

According to the company, after Lucius, Anadarko’s most technically advanced truss spar to date, Heidelberg is the 8th Spar delivered by Technip to Anadarko.

The detailed hull design and fabrication started in November 2012.
