According to Petrobras, production at Cascade and Chinook fields hit 40,000 barrels per day (bpd) on March 4, 2014, a new output record for these oilfields. Cascade has 3 wells in operation and Chinook 2 wells.

The record levels were achieved by bringing on stream two new wells, Chinook-5 and Cascade-6, contributing a further 28,000 bpd to the previous output of 12,000 bpd.

Cascade and Chinook are located some 260 km south of the Louisiana coast and 24 km apart, at a water depth of 2,500 meters.

The wells have an average depth of 8,000 meters are connected to the BW Pioneer, the first FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) approved for use in the U.S. sector of the Gulf of Mexico.

The oil is transferred from the FPSO to shuttle tankers and delivered to refineries and terminals along the North American coast.

We are the operator of both fields, with a 100% stake in the Cascade field and a 66.7% stake the Chinook field, in partnership with Total E&P USA Inc. which holds the remaining 33.3%.
