TechnipFMC has received a contract from Shell for its Dover offshore oil field development located within the Mississippi Canyon in the US Gulf of Mexico.
Under the terms of the contract, the company will provide integrated engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (iEPCI) services.
TechnipFMC will supply of subsea tree systems for the Dover development.
The contractual scope also includes engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the umbilical, riser, and flowline systems.
Jonathan Landes, President, Subsea at TechnipFMC, commented: “Dover represents a continuation of our decades-long relationship with Shell. We look forward to helping extend production in this prolific basin.”
The Dover project is proposed to be developed as a subsea tie-back to the Appomattox floating production platform, which is operated by Shell.
TechnipFMC was previously contracted to supply and install the subsea production systems for the Appomattox.
Shell made a final investment decision (FID) for the project in March this year.
Production from the Dover field is expected to commence between late 2024 and early 2025. The field is anticipated to have a peak production of up to 21,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
Discovered in 2018, Dover is located at a water depth of 7,500ft, about 273.5km offshore southeast of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Earlier this month, TechnipFMC received a contract from Equinor Energy do Brasil to provide iEPCI services for the BM-C-33 project offshore Brazil.
The contract was awarded after TechnipFMC completed an integrated front end engineering and design study for the BM-C-33 field.
Under the iEPCI contract, the company will provide the entire subsea system, including flowlines, jumpers, manifolds, risers, subsea distribution, Subsea 2.0™ tree systems, topside control equipment and umbilicals.
The scope of the contract also includes the provision of life of field services.
Last week, TechnipFMC was contracted by Equinor to provide riser less light well intervention (RLWI) services on the Norwegian continental shelf.
