"The Tahiti pipeline positions Chevron for near- and long-term sustained production growth in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. Chevron has had great success in deepwater exploration, and this project is another milestone in Chevron's commitment to develop and deliver new crude oil and natural gas production," said Gary Luquette, president of Chevron North America Exploration and Production Company. "The pipeline will serve Chevron's $3.5 billion Tahiti project and may also facilitate the development of other current and future discoveries."
The 55-mile pipeline will be built by Amberjack Pipeline Company LLC and owned equally by Chevron Pipe Line Company and Shell Pipe Line Company LP. The pipeline will be located in 4,200 feet of water in Green Canyon block 641 and will connect the Tahiti platform, currently under construction, and the existing Amberjack pipeline system and other existing crude oil pipeline infrastructure in Green Canyon Block 19. The Tahiti project is expected to begin production in 2008 and to have a maximum daily production of 125,000 barrels of crude oil and 70 million cubic feet of natural gas.
