TechnipFMC Awarded an Integrated Project for Supply and Installation of Subsea Equipment
LONDON, PARIS, HOUSTON, March 27, 2017 — TechnipFMC (NYSE and Euronext: FTI) has been awarded a contract by Shell Offshore Inc., a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell PLC (Shell), for the delivery, integration, and installation of the subsea production system (SPS) and subsea riser, jumper and flowline (SURF) equipment for phase one of the Kaikias deep water project in the Gulf of Mexico. This new contract builds on an established, successful relationship between Shell and TechnipFMC.
“TechnipFMC has a proven track record of competitively designing subsea production systems and technologies that directly contribute to improved project economics,” said Hallvard Hasselknipe, President Subsea Projects, TechnipFMC. “We are excited to bring our expertise to Kaikias phase one and provide Shell with cost efficient SPS and SURF solutions that will enable efficient project execution and maximize production from the field.”
TechnipFMC collaborated with Shell during the front end planning and design for Kaikias phase one to engineer solutions and efficient execution opportunities designed to improve the overall cost and pace of development. Under the terms of the contract, TechnipFMC will manufacture, install and integrate proprietary SPS and SURF equipment designed to improve project economics by optimizing field production and minimizing lead times.
This includes the first application of TechnipFMC’s compact pipeline end manifold and horizontal connection system technologies with flexible jumpers in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico.
Kaikias is located in the prolific Mars-Ursa basin approximately 210 kilometers (130 miles) from the Louisiana coast and is estimated to contain more than 100 million barrels of oil equivalent recoverable resources. The field will produce oil and gas through a subsea tie-back to the nearby Shell-operated Ursa production hub.
