VIDEO: Shell’s Olympus TLP Arrival to Texas

After traveling more than 18,000 miles from South Korea to South Texas, Shell’s Olympus hull arrives safely in the U.S. Watch the arrival caught on film.

 

In the following video, see the Shell’s Olympus TLP hull arrive in Texas following the long journey from South Korea.  The approximately 32,500 metric ton main body of the Olympus TLP, arrived in Texas two weeks ago.

The installation of the topsides will now take place before the TLP departs for its final location on the Mars Field in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Mars Field, owned by Shell (71.5%) and BP (28.5%), and operated by Shell, continues to contribute to the Gulf of Mexico’s position as a critical component of the US energy supply. Discovered in 1989 and brought onto production in 1996, the Mars Field is considered one of the largest resource basins in the Gulf of Mexico. The site for the Olympus TLP, known as the Mars B development, is located about 130-miles south of New Orleans in the Mississippi Canyon and lies in approximately 3000 feet of water.

The Olympus TLP, Shell’s sixth and largest tension leg platform, will also provide process infrastructure for two of Shell’s deep water discoveries, West Boreas and South Deimos.
