CNOOC: Stampede Field Begins Production

CNOOC has informed that the Stampede field, located in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, has started production.

The Stampede Field is located in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 185 kilometers south of Fourchon, Louisiana, U.S.A. It is positioned in approximately 1,066 meters of water, with a reservoir depth of 9,100 meters.

The facility is designed for a gross topsides processing capacity of approximately 80,000 barrels of oil per day, 40 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day, and 100,000 barrels of water injection capacity per day.

Under the current development scope, production facilities will consist of six subsea production wells and four water injection wells tied back to a Tension Leg Platform (TLP). Three production wells are currently completed, and production is expected to ramp up through 2018.

Nexen Petroleum Offshore U.S.A., a wholly owned affiliate of CNOOC, has a 25 percent working interest in Stampede Field. Hess Corporation, Union Oil Company of California, a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation and Statoil Gulf of Mexico, each have a 25 percent working interest while Hess is the operator.
