THE PROJECT

  • The Hebron oil field is located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in the Jeanne d'Arc Basin 350 kilometres southeast of St. John's.
  • The field was first discovered in 1980, and is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.
  • The water depth at the Hebron field is 93 metres (Mean Sea Level).
  • Hebron Platform IllustrationThe Hebron field is being developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). The GBS consists of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand sea ice, icebergs and meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
  • The GBS is designed to store approximately 1.2 million barrels of crude oil. The Bull Arm site is the primary construction site for the GBS.
  • The GBS will support an integrated Topsides deck that includes a living quarters and facilities to perform drilling and production.
  • A substantial portion of the Topsides is being engineered and fabricated in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the integration will be performed at the Bull Arm Site.
  • Fabrication of the Derrick Equipment Set (DES) and the Utilities/Process Module (UPM) of the topsides is occuring in Ulsan, Korea.
  • The project includes offshore surveys, engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, installation, commissioning, development drilling, production, operations and maintenance and decommissioning.
  • Hebron is a major project that is delivering significant benefits to Newfoundland and Labrador: engineering, fabrication and construction, employment and training of a diverse workforce, research and development opportunities, along with significant royalty and tax revenues.
