Santa Fe To Install 2 Production Platforms For Union Oil Company

Santa Fe International Corp., Orange, Calif., announced that its semisubmersible d e r r i c k barge Choctaw I is being transferred from the Gulf of Mexico to the West Coast to install two proposed oil production platforms off California for Union Oil Company of California.

Union is currently in the process of obtaining all Federal, state and local permits for the project.

Santa Fe Engineering Services Co., a subsidiary of Santa Fe International, will be responsible for the design, fabrication, transportation, and installation of a 12- pile, multi-well structure, known as Platform Gilda. This structure will be installed in 210 feet of water in the Santa Clara Field, approximately 10 miles west of Oxnard, Calif.

Under an extension of an existing contract, Santa Fe Engineering Services will be responsible for the fabrication, transportation and installation of a small structure, known as Platform Gina. Designed by Santa Fe under the earlier contract, this will be a six-pile, multi-well platform to be set in the Hueneme Field in 95 feet of water, about four miles west of Port Hueneme.

The larger platform will be launched from the SF-4000, Santa Fe's newest launch barge, which will also be moved from the Gulf Coast to assist on the project. The two platforms are scheduled to be installed late in 1980.
