Description

In November 2013, the Jack St. Malo floating production unit (FPU), the largest semi-submersible in the Gulf of Mexico, was towed from Ingleside, TX to be moored 250 miles offshore in 7,000 feet of water. The FPU, with an design capacity for 170,000 barrels of oil and 42.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day, will produce from two fields located over 25 miles apart and from reservoirs more than 26,000 feet deep. Production from Jack/St. Malo, scheduled to go online late 2014, will help Chevron toward its goal of 3.1 million barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2017.
