Oooguruk Development Project
The Oooguruk project is located in the Alaskan Beaufort Sea and consists of a 6 acre gravel drill site approximately 5 miles offshore in 4.5 feet of water. The drill site is connected to an onshore facility by a complex flowline system consisting of a 5.7 mile subsea buried flowline bundle which transitions onshore to a 2.3 mile traditional North Slope above ground flowline support system. Approximately 38 horizontal extended reach wells will be drilled into two horizons to develop the field. Drilling commenced in December 2007 and the field is scheduled to come online in 2008.
This paper generally describes the Oooguruk field development concept, project execution strategy and the challenges faced during planning and construction. Details regarding island design, environmental design criteria, pipeline design and construction, and drilling rig capabilities are included in other technical papers.
