Chevron sanctioned the Anchor deepwater project – the industry’s first deepwater high-pressure development to achieve the FID – on Thursday, December 12, 2019.

The project will be developed with seven subsea wells connected to a semi-submersible floating production unit (FPU) with a capacity of 75,000 barrels of crude oil and 28 million cubic feet of gas per day. First oil is expected in 2024.

On that same day, announcing the contract award to OneSubsea, Schlumberger said that, through this engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) award, OneSubsea would supply vertical monobore production trees and multiphase flowmeters rated up to 20,000 psi.

Also included are production manifolds and an integrated manifold multiphase pump station rated to 16,500 psi, subsea controls and distribution.

Awarded in March, this is the first 20,000-psi subsea production system contract in the industry, Schlumberger sid.

“We are delighted that Chevron has awarded OneSubsea the industry’s first 20,000-psi integrated deepwater project in the US Gulf of Mexico,” said Don Sweet, president, OneSubsea.

“Our innovative technologies optimize project efficiency and help reduce cycle times.”

The equipment that will be deployed in this project is covered under the 20-year subsea equipment and services master order for Chevron’s development projects in the Gulf of Mexico.
