The Big Foot oil field is located around 30,000 km south of New Orleans in the Gulf of Mexico, the U.S. It’s one of Chevron’s capital projects in that region. The field is located at a water depth of around 1500m, and it contains oil and gas reserves of about 200 million oil-equivalent barrels.
Chevron is currently operating this project, but there are other hareholders as well. It is expected to have a productive lifespan of around 35 years. It is the eighth biggest oil and gas field in the deepwater of the Gulf of Mexico.
Working in the Gulf of Mexico is no simple thing; not many people have the right idea of how difficult it could be. The conditions are challenging, and finding and recovering resources from the depth of water are highly complex. But, Chevron has proved that with innovation, you can find the solution to every problem. They have shown that if you choose the right people and make the right plan, you can achieve success even in the toughest of conditions. They were presented with different challenges, but their employees and the use of technology helped them to overcome these challenges.
It’s a complex project, but still, they are operating safely, without putting the life of any employee in danger. Chevron is not only providing the world with the energy it needs its working to improve the living standards and providing students with the opportunities to make a better future. It’s working with several non-profit organizations, including Rebuilding Together. They are working together to give people of that region with affordable homes. Furthermore, they are working to restore and renovate homes of the area, as an effort to improve the standard of living.
They are providing great opportunities to students of New Orleans to learn the modern techniques and build a great future. They are arranging robotic competitions and engineering design challenges so that the students can learn STEM concepts. Furthermore, they believe the success of any project lies in the hand of the employees, and so they want to train the students who one day will take the project in their hands.
