BP plc BP announced the arrival of Argos in the United States. The new floating production unit has reached the Kiewit Offshore Services fabrication yard in Ingleside, TX, from South Korea.

The new semi-submersible floating production unit is among the largest oil production platforms of the British energy giant and hence is the centerpiece of the integrated energy firm’s $9-billion Mad Dog 2 development. Notably, the project is to extract oil from the Mad Dog offshore field, which is the second phase of the field’s development. BP expects the Mad Dog 2 project to come online by the second quarter of 2022.

The company added that at its peak capacity, the facility will be capable of producing 140,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day which the energy major believes will scale up its production in the Gulf of Mexico by roughly 25%. Most importantly, Argos will not only strengthen upstream business in the Gulf of Mexico but will also support job creations. Investors should note that in the Gulf of Mexico, Argos is going to be the fifth operated platform of the company.
