MinnowPod Wellhead Platforms

The MinnowPod Wellhead Platform philosophy is a shallow water solution that requires strengthened conductors that not only serve as surface casings of exploration wells where there is a high probability of success, but can also be retained for later conversion to minimal offshore structures in the event that a discovery is made.

The concept is based around strengthened 30” conductor with mechanical connectors. If the well is unsuccessful, the monopod is cutoff at the mudline and recovered for re-use.

If the well proves commercial appropriate topsides are then designed and post installed, together with a tie back.

This approach has seen many MinnowPod installations in the Carnarvon Basin.
