TechnipFMC Wins Shell Perdido Contract
Shell has awarded TechnipFMC an iEPCI contract for its Perdido Phase 2 development in the US Gulf of Mexico.

Shell has awarded TechnipFMC an integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation (iEPCI) contract for its Perdido Phase 2 development in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM).

“We are extremely pleased to have been selected by Shell for the Perdido Phase 2 development which is incorporating our latest generation of subsea equipment,” Arnaud Pieton, Subsea president with TechnipFMC, said in a written statement.

According to TechnipFMC, the contract calls for delivering and installing subsea equipment including:

  • Flexible flowlines
  • Flexible jumpers
  • Steel flying leads
  • Electrical flying leads

The firm added the project will deploy compact manifold technology via its Subsea 2.0 In-Line Compact Manifold product.

“This award once again confirms our leadership position in complete subsea developments, through early engagement with iFEED (integrated front-end engineering and development) studies and realizing the full scope through an iEPCI,” noted Pieton. “We are looking forward to further support Shell in unlocking benefits through our integrated offering.”

Deployed in 2010, the Shell-operated Perdido spar is located approximately 200 miles (322 kilometers) south of Freeport, Texas, in GOM Alaminos Canyon Block 857. An overview on Shell’s website states the facility – moored in approximately 8,000 feet (2,450 meters) of water – serves as an oil and gas production hub for the Great White, Tobago and Silvertip fields.

Shell’s partners in the fields tied to the Perdido hub include Chevron, BP and Nexen.
