Marco Polo is Anadarkos first deepwater development. It is located on Green Canyon Block 608 about 240 km (150 miles) offshore Louisiana in the Gulf of Mexico. It uses a floating production platform capable of accommodating production from multiple fields. The platform is stationed in 1,310 m (4,300 ft) of water and functions as a hub. Production capacity is 120,000 bopd and 300 mmcf/d of gas. Under the agreement, Anadarko has a firm capacity of 50,000 bopd and 150 mmcf/d of gas. The remainder of the platform capacity will be available to Anadarko for additional production and/or to third parties that have fields developed in the area. Oil and gas processed on the platform is transported through new gathering pipelines to downstream markets. The oil is transported through a new 55 km (34 miles), 14 pipeline and El Pasos Allegheny oil pipeline to Ship Shoal 332 platform where onshore markets can be accessed via the Poseidon oil pipeline system.
