Australian offshore engineering company Worley has been awarded a three-year engineering and procurement services contract by Shell to support five of its assets in the Gulf of Mexico.
Worley said the contract will support Shell’s transition to a digitised and more efficient project delivery model for the maintenance of offshore assets as part of its work to continue to lower the carbon intensity of its Gulf of Mexico portfolio, which is already among the lowest in the world.
The contract also allows for the future support of the Shell Whale deepwater development in the Gulf of Mexico. Under the new contract, Worley will provide professional services in digital enablement, engineering, procurement and support fabrication and construction. The services will be executed by Worley’s offices in Metairie, Louisiana; Houston, Texas; and its engineering teams in India.
“Having worked with Shell for over 30 years, we are pleased to provide these professional services to support Shell on its low carbon journey and support its assets in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Chris Ashton, CEO of Worley.
