Worley Bags BP Mad Dog 2 Contract

Worley has been awarded a contract by BP for hook-up and commissioning integration services for BP’s Mad Dog 2 project and the Argos deep-water platform in the Gulf of Mexico.

Argos will be BP’s newest floating production unit (FPU). It is planned to be commissioned in 2021.

The project will also have a subsea production system with 14 production wells and eight water injection wells.

Under the contract, Worley will prepare for arrival of the FPU in the Gulf of Mexico and complete final systems commissioning in Texas, offshore hook-up at the Mad Dog field and handover of the platform to BP’s Global Operations Organization.

Worley is looking forward to supporting BP’s North American strategy through the integration of this new asset into BP’s production fleet in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Andrew Wood, chief executive officer of Worley.

BP sanctioned the Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico in 2016.

BP discovered the Mad Dog field in 1998 and began production there with its first platform in 2005. Continued appraisal drilling in the field during 2009 and 2011 doubled the resource estimate of the Mad Dog field to more than 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent, spurring the need for another platform at the field.

The second Mad Dog platform will be moored approximately six miles to the southwest of the existing Mad Dog platform, which is located in 1.37 kilometers of water about 306 kilometers south of New Orleans. The current Mad Dog platform has the capacity to produce up to 80,000 gross barrels of oil and 60 million gross cubic feet of natural gas per day.
