Williams has reached an export agreement with Beacon Offshore to provide offshore natural gas gathering, transportation, and processing services to the Shenandoah development through the Discovery infrastructure in the Gulf of Mexico.
An 8-km (5-mi) offshore lateral pipeline build from the Shenandoah platform to Discovery’s existing Keathley Canyon Connector pipeline and additional onshore processing infrastructure will be installed to handle the Shenandoah production.
The natural gas will be transported to Discovery’s processing plant in Larose, Louisiana, and the natural gas liquids will be fractioned and marketed at Discovery’s Paradis plant in Louisiana.
Shenandoah extends in Walker Ridge Blocks 51 and 52. First production is slated for September 2024. A final investment decision is still expected to be made by 31 July 2021. The future Shenandoah floater will have a production capacity of over 70,000 BOE/d, and sit about 247 km (154 mi) from shore in a 1,750 m (5,740 ft) water
