TechnipFMC has been awarded a significant integrated engineering, procurement, construction and installation contract by Shell for the PowerNap project, located in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM).
TechnipFMC will design, manufacture and install subsea hardware, including subsea tree systems, subsea distribution controls, topside controls, flying leads and connectors for three wells, in addition to the supply of 20 miles of production umbilical and flowlines.
“We are very pleased to have been awarded this iEPCITM contract for the Shell PowerNap project. We look forward to executing the scope of work and to further expanding our 25-year successful relationship with Shell and our deepwater portfolio in the Gulf of Mexico,” Arnaud Pieton, president of subsea at TechnipFMC, said.
PowerNap is a subsea tie-back project to the Olympus production hub and is located in Mississippi Canyon, Block MC943 in the GoM. The project is expected to complete installation in late 2021 and produce up to 35,000 barrels per day of oil equivalent at peak rates.
For TechnipFMC, a significant contract is between $75 million and $250 million.
