Petsec Energy is pleased to announce that the Hummer Development Platform Deck has been completed. The deck, with oil and gas production facilities has been loaded onto a barge (see photo below) and is ready for transport to site where it will be set onto the platform jacket seated over the Main Pass 270 #3 BP 1 discovery well. First production is targeted for mid to late November.
The Hummer Gas/Oil Field, extends over Main Pass Blocks 270, 273 and 274, in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Louisiana, USA. The Hummer Project discovery well, Main Pass 270 #3 BP 1, is located in U.S. federal waters approximately 50 miles southeast of Venice, Louisiana. The water depth at the location is approximately 215 feet. The well was drilled, logged and temporarily suspended in late 2015. A platform jacket was installed over the well, and the well was completed and production tested in late 2016. The well was tested over a 48 hour period. Test rates recorded over the last three hours of the test period averaged 19.88 MMcfpd and 396 bopd on a 16/64th inch choke with a flowing well head pressure of 9753 psi. The test rates continued to increase over the final flow period.
Following the production test the well was suspended pending installation of the deck, production facilities and pipelines. A turnkey contract was awarded in January 2017 for the design, engineering, modification, and fabrication of production facilities, and installation of the platform deck onto the installed jacket for the Hummer Main Pass Block 270 “B” production platform and for the planning, installation and hook-up of the pipelines connecting the platform to gas and oil sales pipelines. A four pile deck was acquired for this purpose and has been modified to accommodate the current production facilities and for future expansion.
