  • Italy: Agip's King Kong field tieback in the Gulf of Mexico

    The King Kong gas field is located in 3,900-ft water in Green Canyon Blocks 472, 473 and 516, in the US Gulf of Mexico, 150 mi south of New Orleans, Louisiana. The development project comprises three subsea wells, each tied back to a central subsea manifold. From the manifold, two flowlines extend 16 miles to Agip Petroleum’s Allegheny mini tension leg platform (TLP), which is primarily an oil treating facility. The project required design of new equipment using the most advanced technologies – both subsea and topsides.
