BP PLC (BP) said Tuesday it plans a major expansion at the Atlantis field in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The $1.3 billion Atlantis Phase 3 development will include a new subsea production system from eight new wells that will be tied into the current platform, 150 miles south of New Orleans. The project, scheduled to come onstream in 2020, is expected to boost production at the platform by an estimated 38,000 barrels of oil equivalent a day gross at its peak, BP said.
BP said a recent breakthrough in seismic imaging has identified 1 billion barrels of additional oil in place at Thunder Horse field. In addition, new discoveries near the BP-operated Na Kika platform provide additional development opportunities, the company said.
