Ship Shoal 332 to Texas City and Port Neches - GOM
OVERALL PROJECT SCOPE
Cameron Highway Oil Pipeline System (CHOPS)is a major new oil transportation system in the Gulf of Mexico with two major terminals located in southeast Texas. The 380-mile pipeline system delivers up to 500,000 barrels of oil per day from deepwater production sites in the southern Green Canyon and western Gulf of Mexico areas to onshore terminals in Texas City and Port Neches, Texas areas.
The system consists of a 30-inch diameter pipeline originating at a new platform in Ship Shoal 332 in 438 feet of water and extending 113 miles west to an existing platform in Garden Banks 72 in 517 feet of water. From the GB 72 platform, the 30-inch pipeline will go 126 miles in a northwesterly direction to new platform in High Island A5 in 63 feet of water. At HI A5, the pipeline system splits into two 24-inch diameter pipelines. One pipeline extends to a drilled shore approach near Sabine Pass and then goes onshore to the Port Neches area, a total distance of 70 miles. The other 24-inch segment goes to a drilled shore approach to Bolivar Peninsula and then the pipeline goes through Galveston Bay to terminal points in Texas City, a total distance of 65 miles. Along its offshore route, the pipeline system crosses approximately 70 existing pipelines and required two horizontal directional drill crossings and an additional 22 directional drills along the bay and onshore routes.
