AMEC to Design, Deliver Expansion in MWCC's Containment System

AMEC has been selected by the Marine Well Containment Company (MWCC) to design and deliver components of MWCC's expanded containment system.

"I am pleased that AMEC's track record of excellent execution, particularly of complex and challenging projects, has gained this recognition," said Simon Naylor, president of AMEC's Natural Resources Americas business. "This project is of significance to the reputation and future of our industry and it is a testament to our people that we have been given the responsibility to deliver a significant part of it."

AMEC's role covers project management, engineering, fabrication, integration, and commissioning of modular equipment to be utilized by the capture vessels of the Marine Well Containment System. AMEC's recent acquisition, qedi, will be supporting AMEC on the integrated completions and commissioning services. When completed, the modular assemblies will be stored and maintained at permanent shore base locations.

The expanded containment system, scheduled for delivery in 2012, is designed to operate in up to 10,000 feet of water in the Gulf of Mexico, and capture up to 100,000 barrels of fluid and 200 million cubic feet of gas per day.
