Chevron Corporation has a long-term upstream strategy to find and develop legacy assets and Global Upstream considers the deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico, one of the best places in the world to acquire, find and develop new legacy assets. The Jack/St. Malo and Big Foot development projects, which will both start production in 2014 along with Gorgon Trains 1, 2 and 3 are major component of Chevron’s next step-up in global production growth from 2014 to 2017.
Both Jack/St. Malo and Big Foot will be contributing near peak production in 2017, adding close to 90,000 barrels of oil per day Chevron’s share to the global portfolio.
I think Chevron and DWEP are uniquely position to be able to execute multiple projects at one time. We’re doing that now with our Big Foot and our Jack St. Malo projects. We have again experienced people here within DWEP, many of which have worked within this organization for a number of years, very experienced in the Gulf of Mexico. We bring in our Chevron management practices for projects, together with project professionals from across the company through our project resources organization.
Jack/St. Malo is the project to develop two separate fields in deepwater Gulf of Mexico is the Jack Field and St. Malo field. These fields are 25 miles apart, we’re located in about 7,000 feet of water and our reservoir depths and our wells depths are in the 26,000 to 28,000 foot range. So extremely challenging from a well depth, temperature, pressure standpoint and the water depth.
So we’re basically building about 20,000 tons worth of topsides and what’s encompassed in that is about 600 people involved at any one time, working two shifts, 10 hour shifts. It’s a big payroll. It’s about $2 million dollars a week.
They required a significant amount of planning and coordination and directions where everybody has a job to do and know what they have to do, they also know what goes on around each other, so they can complete it safely and efficiently.
The Big Foot deepwater development project will involve capital expenditures in excess of $4 billion. It’s in about 5,200 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico. We’re going to develop it with a single drill center, so all the wells will be on a single location on the seabed. The method for the facility is going to be an Extended Tension Leg Platform with facilities on top to process 75,000 barrels of oil a day.
Well, here we’re fabricating the topsides for the Big Foot project. There is three modules, each on the order of 8,000 tons. There is a process module, a drilling module and a utility module.
And in the case of both Big Foot and Jack / St. Malo health environment and safety goes a long way into our work in the early stages.
