This is the first material equipment order for the Shenandoah project and is said to be the first of its kind for subsea trees designed for pressures up to 20,000 psi.
Located about 200 mi (322 km) south of New Orleans, the Shenandoah discovery is in the unit comprised of Walker Ridge blocks 51, 52, and 53.
LLOG is the operator and the partners are Venari Offshore, LLC, Navitas Petroleum, and Beacon Offshore Energy.
The leases are currently held under a Suspension of Production and will be developed using a new floating production system.
The partnership will drill multiple wells to develop the estimated 100 to 400 MMbbl targeting previously discovered oil-bearing Upper and Lower Wilcox-reservoirs. According to LLOG, the oil and rock qualities for the Shenandoah development are both best-in-class for the emerging Wilcox production trend.
