Offshore service contractor Oceaneering International has been awarded a contract by Shell Offshore to provide services and products to support the design, fabrication and installation of ancillary flowline hardware for the Appomattox development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
The scope of work for ancillary flowline hardware will include the procurement and installation of pre-lay and post-lay crossing mattresses, flowline jumper fabrication and installation, manifold installation, as well as the design, procurement, fabrication and installation of subsea buoyancy for flowline thermal expansion.
Oceaneering will deploy its newbuild multi-service vessel Ocean Evolution, which is scheduled for delivery in the latter part of 2017, to perform the offshore installation services in various phases commencing late 2017 and ending in 2019.
Oceaneering is also expected to provide project management, engineering, remotely operated vehicle services, survey services, subsea tooling and global data solution services to Shell.
“We are extremely pleased to expand our scope of supply, in addition to previously securing the control umbilicals contract, on this Shell deepwater Gulf of Mexico development. This project demonstrates Oceaneering’s capabilities to leverage our comprehensive portfolio of offshore services and products to produce safe, reliable and cost effective solutions that meet all of a customer’s requirements,” said Roderick A. Larson, president and chief executive officer of Oceaneering.
