Anchor oil field : Williams to deliver natural gas transportation services

Williams has signed an agreement with Chevron and its partner Total E&P USA to deliver offshore natural gas transportation services to the Anchor oil field development in the US Gulf of Mexico.

The Anchor oil project is located 140 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Green Canyon area.

Chevron is looking to drill multiple wells and build a floating production platform that can handle the new rich natural gas and oil production from the Anchor deepwater project.

Williams said that it will make use of its existing presence and system capabilities to transport the Anchor field’s natural gas production to the Discovery system, of which the company is the operator with a 60% stake and is partnered by DCP (40%).

The new rich natural gas from the offshore field will be transported to Discovery’s processing plant located in Larose, Louisiana. On the other hand, the natural gas liquids will be fractionated and marketed at the Paradis plant of the Discovery system in Louisiana.

Micheal Dunn – Chief Operating Officer for Williams said: “We are extremely well-positioned in the Gulf of Mexico, with asset synergies that are second to none in this active region, and we’re pleased to leverage and expand our existing infrastructure to serve the growing needs of deep-water producers.

“Discovery offers producers the full suite of midstream natural gas services to maximize value for its customers, who partner with Williams to help them complete their value chain by safely gathering, processing and delivering the energy that fuels our nation and drives a clean energy economy.”

Contained in water depths of nearly 1,524m, the Anchor oil field is expected to be developed in multiple phases. Chevron and Total took a final investment decision for phase 1 development in December 2019 with an ambition to draw the first oil from the Anchor oil project in 2024.
