The Hebron oil field is located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada in the Jeanne d’Arc Basin 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s.
The field was first discovered in 1980, and is estimated to produce more than 700 million barrels of recoverable resources.
The water depth at the Hebron field is 93 metres (Mean Sea Level).
The Hebron field is being developed using a stand-alone concrete gravity based structure (GBS). The GBS consists of a reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand sea ice, icebergs and meteorological and oceanographic conditions.
The GBS is designed to store approximately 1.2 million barrels of crude oil. The Bull Arm site is the primary construction site for the GBS.
The GBS will support an integrated Topsides deck that includes a living quarters and facilities to perform drilling and production.
A substantial portion of the Topsides is being engineered and fabricated in Newfoundland and Labrador, and the integration will be performed at the Bull Arm Site.
Fabrication of the Derrick Equipment Set (DES) and the Utilities/Process Module (UPM) of the topsides is occuring in Ulsan, Korea.
The project includes offshore surveys, engineering, procurement, fabrication, construction, installation, commissioning, development drilling, production, operations and maintenance and decommissioning.
Hebron is a major project that is delivering significant benefits to Newfoundland and Labrador: engineering, fabrication and construction, employment and training of a diverse workforce, research and development opportunities, along with significant royalty and tax revenues.
