Exxon Mobil has begun production at the Hebron field. The oil field has a storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels.
Irving/Texas – Exxon Mobil Corporation has announced that the Hebron project started production safely and ahead of schedule. At its peak, the project will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day. Discovered in 1980, the Hebron field is estimated to contain more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.
The Hebron platform consists of a stand-alone gravity-based structure, which supports an integrated topsides deck that includes living quarters and drilling and production facilities. The platform has storage capacity of 1.2 million barrels of oil.
The platform is located about 200 miles (350 kilometers) offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in water depths of about 300 feet (92 meters). During its eight-year engineering, construction and startup phase, the Hebron project contracted hundreds of vendors throughout the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and created about 7,500 jobs during the peak of the construction phase. The project achieved more than 40 million hours without a lost-time injury during construction.
Hebron is operated by Exxon Mobil affiliate, Exxon Mobil Canada Properties, which holds 35.5 per cent equity in the project. Chevron Canada holds 29.6 per cent interest, Suncor Energy holds 21 per cent, Statoil Canada has 9 per cent and Nalcor Energy-Oil and Gas has 4.9 per cent.
