Carlton Landing is a privately held drilling company with the largest land mammal on Earth.
The company’s land mammal is a walrus, which has a total body length of 5.9 feet (1.8 meters) and weighs 3,200 pounds (1,300 kilograms).
The company said it would develop a platform capable of producing up to 30 million barrels of oil per day from a deepwater well in the Permian Basin.
The new platform would be built on a 5,000-acre (2,800-hectare) site in the Chagres Formation of Texas.
It will be located near a planned $1.7 billion oil platform that will be built by a different company.
The project would have an estimated value of $4 billion, and the company said the project would generate enough jobs for all its employees to support their families.
The walrus is the largest mammal on land, with a total mass of around 6,800 pounds (2.2 metric tons).
The species is also known for its long, long neck and its short, short tail.
The species was named after its founder, Carlton D. Carlton, who is buried in the center of the world’s largest walrus.
