Gulf of Mexico

Anadarko is among the largest operators in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico with exploration opportunities, discoveries, large-scale developments and producing fields.

Anadarko Production in the Gulf

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.


Anadarko’s newest and largest spar facility, Lucius, began production in January 2015 – three years after it was sanctioned. This world-class project in the Keathley Canyon area is estimated to hold more than 300 million BOE of recoverable resources. A testament to the company’s safety-first culture, crews working on the spar completed more than 9 million hours during development without a lost-time incident.

Lucius is Anadarko’s most technically advanced truss spar to date, and its 80,000-barrels-of-oil-per-day design is currently being replicated for Anadarko’s Heidelberg spar as part of the company’s “design one, build two” approach.

Anadarko Operated Facilities:

  • Lucius (2015)
  • Independence Hub (2007)
  • Constitution (2006) – expanded to host Caesar/Tonga (2012)
  • Marco Polo (2005)
  • Red Hawk – successfully decommissioned (2014)
  • Gunnison (2004) 
  • Nansen (2002)
  • Boomvang (2002)
