Coming less than a month after announcing a major contract win with Chevron and Total, Tulsa-based Williams now has landed another big customer for the company’s offshore and onshore pipeline and processing services. La.-based LLOG Exploration is long known for its deepwater discoveries in the Gulf of Mexico, claiming 13 of the industry’s 32 finds between 2016 and 2019. LLOG’s newest offshore project is the Taggart development expected to come online in early 2022. Crude oil reserves there are estimated at 27 MMBbls over a span of eight years.
The Williams Companies, Inc., is an American energy company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Its core business is natural gas processing and transportation, with additional petroleum and electricity generation assets. A Fortune 500 company, its common stock is a component of the S&P 500.
Gathering and production services for LLOG’s Taggart crude and natural gas will be provided at Williams’-owned Devils Tower spar facility, in addition to onshore gas treatment and processing at its Mobile Bay Process Plant in Ala., and Baton Rouge Fractionator. Supplies will flow via the company’s Mountaineer oil pipeline system and 98.5-mile Canyon Chief natural gas pipeline.
Williams’ Devils Tower floating production facility lays claim to the world’s deepest dry-tree platform at 5,610 ft. Towering 140 miles offshore the Gulf, Devils Tower accommodates subsea tie-backs to deepwater wells via flowlines and can handle 60,000 BPD of crude oil and 110 MMCFPD of natural gas. Crude oil reserves from the Devils Tower field are estimated to range between 80-150 MMBOE.
Williams in May announced an agreement with energy majors Chevron and Total to construct an underwater natural gas pipeline to connect the planned deepwater Anchor, a floating oil and gas platform, with Williams’ Discovery complex in Larose, La. Discovery offers producers a full suite of midstream natural gas and NGLs services. Williams’ Gulf Coast operations include 3,500 miles of natural gas and oil gathering and transmission pipelines, 1.8 BCFD of processing capacity, and 60,000 BPD of fractionation capacity. The company also retains ownership in two other floating production platforms. Anchor is expected to begin service during the first half of 2024.
