Sembmarine inks letter of intent for Vito semi-sub platform with Shell

Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine, also known as Sembmarine, has been awarded a letter of intent by Shell for the construction work related to the oil major’s Vito project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The letter of intent is for the construction of the hull and topside as well as the integration of the Vito floating production unit (FPU).

If the project moves forward, the Vito FPU will be a new facility located in the Mississippi Canyon, approximately 150 miles south of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, in water depth of 4,050 ft.

Comprising a single topside module supported by a 4-column semi-submersible floating hull, the Vito FPU is designed with a throughput capacity of 100,000 bpd of oil and 100 MMSCFD of gas.

Final contract award will be dependent upon Shell and its partners sanctioning the project.

Apart from Vito, Shell is developing three more projects in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico Coulomb Phase 2, Appomattox, and Kaikias.
