BP, leading producer of oil and gas and the largest investor in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico over the past 10 years, has approved the Mad Dog Phase 2 project in the United States.
Mad Dog Phase 2 will include a new floating production platform with the capacity to produce up to 140.000 gross barrels of crude oil per day from up to 14 production wells.
Oil production is expected to begin in late 2021.
BP discovered the Mad Dog field in 1998 and began production there with its first platform in 2005. The necessity of a second platform in the field spurred from continued appraisal drilling during 2009 and 2011, which doubled the resource estimate of the Mad Dog field to more than 4 billion barrels of oil equivalent
Filters® is among the contractors chosen for the Mad Dog Phase 2 project.
