Oilfield Technology,


Wood Group Mustang has been awarded the contract to provide front-end engineering design (FEED) services for Hess Corporation's Stampede tension leg platform (TLP) to be located in 3500 ft of water in the Gulf of Mexico, Green Canyon block. The TLP, with dry topsides weight of 11 500 t, is being designed to produce 80 000 bpd oil, 60 000 bpd water and 120 million ft3/d gas at capacity.

Wood Group Mustang previously provided FEED and detailed design for Hess' Okume production facilities, located offshore Equatorial Guinea, which consisted of four fixed platform facilities with connecting bridges, two TLPs and associated pipelines.

Pleased to extend working relationship from Equatorial Guinea to the US Gulf of Mexico

"The combination of our resume of deepwater Gulf of Mexico topsides facilities and our longstanding relationship with Hess positions us well to deliver FEED services for this production facility. We are pleased to extend our project work for Hess from Equatorial Guinea to the US Gulf of Mexico," said Bob Lindsay, president of the Offshore Business Unit.

Installed more than half of the floating facilities currently installed in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico

Wood Group Mustang is a market leader in the design of topsides for floating facilities and has designed more than half of the 42 floating facilities currently installed in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico.

Currently, Wood Group Mustang is providing engineering services for the topsides of 10 Gulf of Mexico facilities, with the combined potential to add almost 1 million bpd of oil to the world energy supply.
