BHP Billiton discovered the Boris field in November 2001. Located approximately six miles southeast of the ChevronTexaco-operated Typhoon SeaStar TLP (in which BHPB holds a 50% working interest), Boris is BHPB’s first operated project in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Being the first, however, didn’t stop BHPB from setting some very aggressive targets for this 6-mile subsea tieback. The first well came online in February 2003 – just 15 months after discovery of the field. The second well in the system is scheduled for first production in early September 2003. By maximizing utilization of the existing Typhoon infrastructure, Boris 1 & 2 are in a position to contribute significantly to the asset value of the Typhoon mini-basin.

This presentation will provide an overview of the Boris project from Discovery to First Oil. Topics addressed will include field development strategy, project execution, subsea equipment design, flow assurance, and installation and startup challenges.
