TechnipFMC awarded Shell's PowerNap project
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.
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.
Arnaud Pieton, President Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented:
“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 deep water portfolio in the Gulf of Mexico.”
PowerNap is a subsea tie-back to the Shell-operated Olympus production hub.
The project is expected to start production in late 2021 and produce up to 35,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) at peak rates. It is anticipated to have a forward-looking break-even price of less than $35 per barrel and is currently estimated to contain more than 85 million barrels of oil equivalent recoverable resources.
