The Atlantis field located in Gulf of Mexico Green Canyon Block 743/787 in 7,200 ft (2,150 m) water depth. BP is owner and operator with BHP Billeton as partner. Atlantis will be the deepest moored Production Semi-submersible in the world. The unit is designed for one draft only, and shall remain on location in a 100-year hurricane event, moored with a 12-point chain-wire-chain taut-leg.
HSE is one prime objective for the project. During fabrication a 4M man-hours record without recordable incidents or accidents was achieved. Atlantis has 12” production and water injection Steel Catenary Risers. The Export risers are 20”/24” SCR’s. The production and WI risers are hanged off at pontoon level but extended into a riser bay area in the center of the Unit. Direct access with Coil Tubing through a diverter block is provided.
