Shell will receive subsea and topside systems for its Cardamom Deep project in the Gulf of Mexico from FMC Technologies, under a new deal.
Cardamom Deep is a subsea tie-back to Shell’s Auger Tension Leg Platform.
The field in Garden Banks Block 426 in the eastern Gulf of Mexico, is in water depths of about 2,860ft.
FMC will supply five subsea production trees, each rated at 15,000 psi and manufacture and provide subsea and topside controls, manifold and tie-in equipment and other systems and services.
The firm will deliver the equipment to Shell, beginning in the third quarter of 2011.
FMC has also been awarded a contract for supplying subsea systems for Shell Offshore’s West Boreas project.
