Genesis, Murphy Team up in GOM
Genesis Energy is partnering with Murphy E&P and other interest owners to provide downstream transportation services in the Gulf of Mexico.

Genesis Energy LP has teamed up with Murphy Exploration & Production Company and other interest owners, to provide downstream transportation services for all production associated with the deepwater Gulf of Mexico Khaleesi/Mormont and Samurai field developments through the new King’s Quay floating production system.

The King’s Quay FPS, located in Green Canyon Block 433, will process up to 80,000 barrels per day of oil and up to 100 million cubic feet of gas per day from the Khaleesi/Mormont and Samurai field developments. The Khaleesi/Mormont developments are in Green Canyon blocks 345, 389, 390, 434 and 478, and the Samurai development is in Green Canyon Block 432.

The King’s Quay FPS will tie-in subsea to the Shenzi lateral and the oil production will be delivered to either the Cameron Highway or the Poseidon crude oil system for delivery to shore. The gas will tie-in subsea and be gathered on the Anaconda system, which ties into the Nautilus gas system for transportation to shore.

First deliveries of oil and gas are expected in mid-2022.

“The dedication of the anchor production of the King’s Quay FPS is an exciting opportunity for us, and we look forward to working with Murphy, and the other interest owners, as they develop the Khaleesi/ Mormont and Samurai fields,” said Grant E. Sims, CEO of Genesis.

“This project illustrates the strategic positioning of our offshore footprint and how our available capacity and multi-market delivery options will allow us to provide Murphy and other producers in the Gulf of Mexico with attractive transportation alternatives for many years ahead.”

Genesis’ operations are primarily in the Gulf Coast region of the U.S., Wyoming and the Gulf of Mexico.
