Mandy Development/ Matterhorn TLP

Matterhorn TLP production system

Audubon Engineering Solutions provided topsides engineering support and modifications to W&T Offshore’s Matterhorn TLP production system and integrated the system with LLOG Exploration’s Mandy development and topsides equipment. Topsides facilities modifications were completed to receive, separate, and meter Mandy production prior to commingling with existing Matterhorn production. Our engineering, design, and installation services supported two risers to tie back three Mandy wells that were combined into a 4-slot subsea manifold prior to flowing to the Matterhorn TLP.
