A Sembcorp Marine unit has won a contract to construct and integrate the hull, topsides and living quarters of Shell’s Vito semi-submersible floating production unit (FPU).

The contract, awarded to Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters by Shell Offshore, includes installation of Shell-furnished equipment and follows a letter of intent between the two parties announced on December 5, 2017.

Supported by the Vito FPU’s 4-column semi-submersible hull, the topsides weigh 9,200 tons and are designed to produce 100,000 bpd of oil and 100 MMSCFD of gas.

The Vito host will be located in the Mississippi Canyon Block 984 in the Gulf of Mexico, 241 kilometers south of New Orleans, Louisiana.

“We are delighted that Shell has awarded the Vito FPU contract to us. We are fully committed to executing and delivering the project safely and efficiently,” William Gu, Sembcorp Marine Senior Vice President and Head of Rigs & Floaters, commented.
