Exxon Mobil starts production at  Hebron fieldExxon Mobil Corp (www.exxonmobil.com) recently announced that the Hebron project had started production — safely and ahead of schedule. At its peak, the project will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day.

Discovered in 1980, the field is estimated to contain more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.

The Hebron platform is a stand-alone gravity-based structure that supports an integrated topside deck with living quarters, plus drilling and production facilities.

The platform can store 1.2 million barrels of oil and is located about 200 miles off Newfoundland and Labrador, where the water is about 300ft deep.

Liam Mallon, president of Exxon Mobil Development Co, said: “The successful start-up of the Hebron project demonstrates Exxon Mobil’s disciplined project management expertise and highlights its ability to execute large-scale energy developments safely and responsibly in challenging operating conditions.

"We thank the project’s co-venturers for their expertise and support, as well as the employees and contractors who supported construction of the facility, its tow-out to the field and the drilling of the initial wells.”

During its eight-year engineering, construction and start-up phase, the Hebron project involved hundreds of companies throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, and it created about 7,500 jobs at the peak of the construction phase.
