ExxonMobil Files Development Plans for Hebron

ExxonMobil has filed a development application with the Newfoundland and Labrador regulatory board for the Hebron project.

The field is expected to come online in 2017. Oil from Hebron will be produced from a concrete gravity base structure. The Hebron facility is designed to handle an estimated production rate of about 150,000 bopd, and potentially increase to 180,000 bopd.

The scope of the project is expected to span over 30 years from the initial development phase, through installation and operations, decommissioning and abandonment. Hebron is located offshore St. John’s Newfoundland and Labrador in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin in the North Atlantic Ocean. Hebron project partners include ExxonMobil with 36% interest, Chevon with 26.7%, Petro-Canada with 22.7%, Statoil with 9.7% and Nalcor Energy with 4.9% interest.
