 Deepwater Producing

Anadarko is among the largest independent leaseholders and producers in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico, with more than 2 million net acres and seven operated floating facilities.  

View Anadarko's quarterly operations report and investor presentations for our most recent activity in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.


Anadarko’s Lucius field in the Keathley Canyon area of the deepwater Gulf of Mexico is under development with first oil expected in the fourth quarter of 2014.

Anadarko implemented a “design one; build two” strategy to develop its Heidelberg discovery in the Green Canyon area of the deepwater Gulf of Mexico. By constructing the twin truss spars, Anadarko was able to accelerate the anticipated date of first oil by approximately 18 months. Heidelberg is expected to achieve first oil in 2016.


In March 2012, Anadarko and the co-owners of the Caesar/Tonga complex achieved first oil from this deepwater mega project in the Green Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico. Additional information about Caesar/Tonga is available on our YouTube channel. This project received the Premier Project Award for Engineering Excellence in 2012 at the Platts Global Energy Awards.

Independence Hub

During the first quarter of 2012, the Independence Hub surpassed a significant milestone of more than 1 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of cumulative natural gas production. In 2010, Independence Hub was recognized at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) with the Distinguished Achievement Award, adding to the long list of awards and honors for this world-record-setting deepwater project. Independence Hub began producing in 2007, and at the time was the world's deepest platform.
