BHP Shenzi

BHP Billiton’s deepwater Shenzi oil and gas field lies in the Gulf of Mexico in Green Canyon Blocks 609, 610, 653, and 654, approximately 120 miles from the coast of Louisiana, USA. Water depths are approximately 1,311m (4,300ft). BHP Billiton is the operator of the field, on behalf of Repsol  and Hess. The field has been developed by a standalone tension leg platform (TLP). The TLP has a nominal capacity to produce up to 100,000 barrels of oil and 50 million cubic feet of gas a day on a 100% basis. KEVTA Fire Systems supplied fire suppression systems for rotating equipment on the project.
