Helix Marginal Prospect Development strategies can be broken-down broadly into Area-wide or Re-Deployable.
Area-Wide — this strategy looks to build a hub facility that ties-back and processes production from multiple area prospects.
Re-Deployable — this strategy utilizes a floating production system that can produce and deplete marginal fields within a relatively short time frame (3 to 5 years) and then be moved to a new location to repeat the process.
