Shell awards Vito design work to Jacobs Engineering

US-based provider of construction services Jacobs Engineering has been awarded a contract from Shell for the Vito project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Jacobs Engineering said on Tuesday, November 29 that, under the terms of the contract, the company would be delivering a front-end engineering and design package and detailed engineering for the Vito host platform topsides.

Vito deepwater development is located in over 4,000 feet of water in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The company also said that the Vito host will initially handle production from the Vito subsea field being subsequently developed, with potential for future tiebacks from other fields.

Jacobs Senior Vice President Petroleum and Chemicals, Manuel Junco, stated, “This project allows us to leverage our experience with deepwater production systems and will be a new lower cost design basis for Shell.”

Shell is the operator of the Vito development with 51.3 percent interest. The Norwegian company Statoil also has stake in the development while Anadarko sold its stake in 2014 to an undisclosed buyer.
