Oxy Brings Horn Mountain West Online in GOM
The project comprises a pair of subsea wells tied back to the host spar.
Occidental has successfully turned the taps on its Horn Mountain West subsea field in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The field is in about 5,400 ft of water. The $250-million project comprises a pair of wells tied back to the existing Horn Mountain spar in Block 126 via a 3½-mile dual flowline. According to Oxy, the project came in on budget and 3 months ahead of schedule. It is expected to eventually add approximately 30,000 BOPD. Horn Mountain initially came on stream in late 2002.
