Shell has selected TechnipFMC to provide subsea equipment for its PowerNap project in the US Gulf of Mexico.
TechnipFMC will design, make and install subsea hardware subsea tree systems, distribution controls, topside controls, flying leads and connectors for three wells.
The firm will also supply 20 miles of production umbilical and flowlines.
Arnaud Pieton, President Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented: “We are very pleased to have been awarded this 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 project to the Olympus production hub and is located in Mississippi Canyon, Block MC943 in the Gulf of Mexico.
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.
