Shell Contracts InterMoor to Replace Wires on Auger TLP

Shell has selected InterMoor to replace eight platform wires on the Auger TLP's lateral mooring system in the Gulf of Mexico. The platform wires are composed of non-jacketed spiral-strand wire.

Additionally, InterMoor will manage, engineer and fabricate installation aids, including a hang off porch to be fitted to the stern of the installation vessel to facilitate operations. DOF Subsea will provide the Skandi Slolten vessel to perform the work, which should arrive in the GOM in March 2011. The project is scheduled for completion in May 2011.

Auger is located 214 miles (344 kilometers) southwest of New Orleans on Garden Banks Blocks 426, 427, 470 and 471. The field is wholly owned and operated by Shell.
