LLOG’s Taggart development to be tied back to Devils Tower Spar platform


US midstream company Williams said that its Devils Tower Spar platform will offer offshore natural gas and oil gathering and production handling services to LLOG Exploration Offshore’s Taggart development under a new tieback agreement signed by the parties.

The Devils Tower Spar platform is located in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico, 140 miles southeast of New Orleans.

Apart from the gathering and production handling, Williams will take up onshore gas treatment and processing services to support the Taggart oil field under the tieback agreement.

According to the US midstream company, natural gas from the Taggart development will be delivered to its Mobile Bay Processing Plant, while the natural gas liquids will be fractionated and marketed at the Baton Rouge Fractionator in Louisiana, in which it has a stake of 33%.

The Taggart oil field is expected to begin production in early 2022. LLOG will be looking to produce an estimated 27 million barrels or so over eight years.
