ROV arm taking core

  • Fate & effect study to provide scientific basis for industry best practices & EPA regulatory decisions

    • Determine areal & time function extent of sediment contamination

    • Sediment toxicity

    • Benthic changes

    • Biodegradation & bioaccumulation

  • Joint Industry Project members:

    • 59 industry companies

    • API, DOE, EPA

  • Benefits of SBM

    • Savings in drilling time & costs: 56% average savings in 1 study

    • Reduced waste, power consumption, air pollution & landfill usage

    • Helps to inhibit gas hydrate formation in deepwater

  • Deepwater development has risen >100,000 bo/p & >400 MMcf/d every year for last five years.

  • MMS forecasts daily deepwater oil production at 2-2.47 MM/b & gas at 10.97-16.39 Bcf by end of 2006.

  • In past 10 yrs, average deepwater field added >64 MM/boe of proved & unproved reserves; in depths of 1,500-7,499 – 73 MM/boe, 12X average shallow-water addition.

  • Estimated ultimate reserves: 71 B bbls/ boe of which 56.4 B to be discovered.

  • Currently 59% of GOM oil production comes from deepwater, 77% by 2006. Gas production from deepwater forecast to be 26% by 2006.
