Mad Dog Phase 2

The Mad Dog Phase 2 project is the second stage development of the Mad Dog offshore field operated by BP. The Mad Dog field was discovered in 1998 and started production in 2005. The Phase 2 project has been planned as an extension to BP’s biggest discovery in the Gulf of Mexico. The entire Mad Dog area is estimated to hold four billion barrels of oil equivalent (boe). BP estimates a production capacity between 120,000 boe and 140,000 boe a day from the new development. South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries is building the semi-submersible production unit in the city of Geoje.

ROCKWOOL Technical Insulation is supplying lightweight SeaRox FB 6000 A60 fire rated insulation. The SeaRox FB 6000 insulation will not only minimize the weight of the platform but will also feature a flexible insulation material that is faster to install and comes with several different options and configurations for installation.
