Sembcorp Marine wins Shell Vito vessel contract

This followed the signing of a letter of intent on 5 December 2017.

Sembcorp Marine's subsidiary Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters won a contract from Shell Offshore Inc. (Shell) to construct and integrate the hull, topsides, and living quarters of the Vito semi-submersible Floating Production Unit (FPU).

According to an announcement, this contract includes installation of Shell-furnished equipment and follows a Letter of Intent (LOI) between the two parties announced on 5 December 2017.

Supported by the Vito FPU’s 4-column semi-submersible hull, the topsides weigh 9,200 tonnes and are designed to produce 100,000 bpd of oil and 100 MMSCFD of gas. The Vito host will be located at a water depth of 1,234m in the Mississippi Canyon Block 984 in the Gulf of Mexico, 241km south of New Orleans, Louisiana, in the US.

Sembcorp Marine senior vice president and head of rigs & floaters William Gu said, “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.”
