Shell Offshore Inc. (Shell), a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc, conducted an initial flyover of our assets in the path of Hurricane Ida. During this initial flight, we observed damage to our West Delta-143 (WD-143) offshore facilities. When it is safe to do so, we will send personnel offshore to provide a closer inspection of these facilities to understand the full extent of the damage and the degree to which our production in the Gulf of Mexico will likely be impacted.

 

The WD-143 facilities serve as the transfer station for all production from our assets in the Mars corridor in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico to onshore crude terminals.

 

Our Perdido asset in the southwestern Gulf of Mexico was never disrupted by the hurricane, and our floating production, storage and offloading vessel, the Turritella (also known as Stones) is currently back on line. All of our other offshore assets remain shut in and remain fully evacuated at this time. At the early phase of assessment and recovery, approximately 80% of Shell-operated production in the Gulf of Mexico remains off line.

 

In our initial flyover, we did not observe any visible structural damage to the rest of our offshore assets. When we are able to safely deploy personnel offshore to these assets, we will conduct additional inspections and work to restore production as soon as possible.

 

As we assess the impact of Hurricane Ida on our Upstream and Downstream businesses, our top priorities continue to be the protection and recovery of our people and assets, the community and the environment.

  PIE Oil & Gas Services, a subsidiary of SPIE, has been awarded a contract from Chevron Australia Pty Ltd to provide Process Automation Systems (PAS) integration services for its subsea gas compression system for the Jansz-Io field, offshore Western Australia.   The Jansz-Io gas field is located around 200 kilometers off the north-western coast of Western Australia, at water depths of approximately 1,400 meters. The field is a part of the Chevron-operated Gorgon facility, one of the world's largest natural gas developments. As the reservoir pressure of the Jansz-Io field declines after years of production, compression infrastructure is required to enhance the recoverability of the field.   The services are carried out by the local Australian subsidiary, SPIE Oil & Gas Services Pty Ltd, and cover all systems integration engineering associated with the subsea gas compression system and field control station along with brownfield modifications required on the existing Gorgon facilities. The engineering services will be also executed in multiple global centers with SPIE’s embedded personnel working closely with EPC [1] design teams.   Work has already commenced on the project and presents an opportunity for SPIE Oil & Gas Services to showcase its technical expertise in tiebacks of greenfield subsea systems to existing operational LNG infrastructure.   “We are very pleased to have been selected for this complex and one-of-a-kind project. It further solidifies our position as a global main automation contractor of choice, for major operators worldwide. We look forward to delivering our specialist engineering services that leverage off our global reach in these challenging times”, commented Christophe Bernhart, Managing Director of SPIE Oil & Gas Services.   SPIE Oil & Gas Services Pty Ltd has been working with Chevron Australia since 2012. The Chevron-operated Gorgon Project is a joint venture between the Australian subsidiaries of Chevron (47.333 percent), ExxonMobil (25 percent), Shell (25 percent), Osaka Gas (1.25 percent), Tokyo Gas (1 percent) and JERA (0.417 percent).   [1] Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC)   Source: SPIE   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!
