Date & Time

William Hughes

The Ballymore asset is in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico approximately 3 miles from Chevron’s Blind Faith Floating Production Unit. The selected development concept expands the production capacity of the Blind Faith facility and utilizes Blind Faith’s available riser and umbilical slots to tie-back and produce Ballymore through a subsea production system designed to accommodate the high temperature and unique fluid characteristics of the Norphlet trend. This presentation will provide an overview of the selected field development concept with focus on: (1) the development alternatives considered; (2) the design challenges associated with producing the Norphlet into an existing Miocene based production facility; and (3) the difficulties associated with delivering the lowest cost of development using a Minimum Functional Objectives (MFO) design approach and standard designs.
