Marathon Oil Achieves First Gas from Alba B3 Platform

Marathon Oil Corporation has achieved first gas production through its new Alba B3 offshore compression platform off Equatorial Guinea.

“The Alba B3 compression project will allow us to maintain plateau production for the next two years, mitigating base decline, while extending the Alba field’s life by up to eight years,” said Mitch Little, vice president—conventional.

Execution of the Alba B3 compression project involved engineering and construction in four countries with Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) serving as the general contractor

Marathon Oil’s wholly owned subsidiary Marathon E.G. Production Limited holds an approximately 65 percent working interest in the Alba field and is the operator, while Noble Energy owns approximately 35 percent.
