Technip awarded spar hull and mooring contract for Shell's Perdido Regional HostNews // November 20, 2006
Technip has been awarded a contract by Shell Offshore Inc to provide the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of a spar hull and mooring system for the Perdido Regional Host Project.
The project is located in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 200 miles south of Freeport (Texas). Moored in about 8,000ft of water, the record breaking spar will be the deepest spar production facility in the world and the first with DVA (direct vertical access), which will reduce the drilling cost, simplify workovers and facilitate access to subsea equipment.
First production from Perdido is expected around the turn of the decade, with the facility capable of handling 130,000 boe/d.
