Anadarko’s Marco Polo deepwater development project is located in Green Canyon Block 608 in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 175 miles south of New Orleans, in a 4300’ water depth environment. Challenging flow assurance and field development issues affected both well completion design and production operation strategies. This presentation will focus on how the completion design for the Marco Polo wells addressed these various issues, will highlight a number of concepts and technical firsts that can be of application to other deepwater development projects, and will present an update on the actual initial completion program at Marco Polo, which was completed in October 2004.
