ABSTRACT
This article reports that Kerr-McGee achieved first offshore oil production from the Constitution oil field in the Gulf of Mexico through a floating oil well drilling platform installed in 5,000 feet of water. Production is from one of six dry-tree wells planned by Kerr-McGee. Peak production is expected from the six dry-tree wells by the end of 2006. Two subsea oil wells from the Ticonderoga field began flowing through the platform in February. Processed oil and produced gas from the platform flow through rigid pipeline for export.
