MPOG currently provides crude oil transportation services in the Main Pass, Viosca Knoll
and Mississippi Canyon areas with onshore Louisiana delivery to either delta or cypress pipelines to the empire terminal.
Work on the second 32-mile extension that will access the Viosca Knoll
leasing areas is slated to begin this month.
Located approximately 60 miles offshore Louisiana, the pipeline will be capable of transporting up to 160 MMcf/d of natural gas to the Viosca Knoll
Gathering System and to El Paso Corporation's Tennessee Gas pipeline system.
The sour gas line--which will gather production from the Viosca Knoll
252 unit and transport it to a gathering system at Mobile Bay Block 113--was installed in water depths of up to 120 feet rising Global's pipelay/bury barge Sea Constructor.
The pipeline was routed from a J-tube at the Virgo production platform, located in 1,130 feet of water at Viosca Knoll
Block 823, to a subsea location at Main Pass Block 281 in 300 feet of water.
The gas line was laid between Main Pass Block 225 in 240 feet of water and Viosca Knoll
Block 823 in 1,130 feet of water.
