In December 2018, Subsea 7 vessel, Seven Arctic, arrived back at Theodore Industrial Port. Core industries demobilized several offshore project cargo items from the Hess Stampede project and mobilized cargo items onto the vessel for Shell’s Appomattox project.

The Stampede deepwater oil and gas field is one of the largest undeveloped fields in the Gulf of Mexico. Discovered in 2005, Stampede is located 115 miles south of Fourchon, LA., in the Gulf of Mexico. The Appomattox is Shell’s largest floating platform in the Gulf of Mexico located 80 miles off the coast of Louisiana.
