Description

The Independence Hub is a world class development of ten natural gas fields in the ultra-deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico. Anadarko is the operator of  eight  of the fields, in which twelve wells were pre-drilled to develop the resources. Completion operations started in early 2006 and was finished in early 2007, during which 7 (seven) single zone wells, 3 (three) two-zone intelligent wells, and 2 (two) three-zone intelligent wells were completed and flow tested from the Transocean Deepwater Millennium Drillship.

This presentation will document an overview of the completion campaign, during which numerous water depth and completion time records were set, utilizing innovative procedures and downhole designs to safely complete the project significantly ahead of budget. Rig and BOP modifications, teamwork, effective communication, and novel solutions that made impact to program effectiveness will be discussed.
