BANGKOK, Thailand – Shell Brasil has received the “Excellence in Project Integration” Award at the International Petroleum Technology Conference (IPTC) 2011 Dinner and Award Presentation held Feb. 7, in Bangkok.
The award was in recognition of the achievements made by Shell Brasil’s BC-10 Parque das Conchas team, in successfully managing and directing an integrated oil and gas project from discovery to production, using breakthrough technology solutions.
Albert Paardekam, BC-10 Development Manager, accepted the award on behalf of the team from the Executive Committee Chairman of the IPTC, and President and CEO, PTT Exploration and Production Plc, Anon Sirisaengtaksin.
Vice President Deepwater Production and Development, Shell Brasil, Kent Stingl said: "Shell is honored to be recognized by a committee of our peers with this prestigious award. The Parque das Conchas project is testament to strong relationships and shared values – a true partnership of Shell and its JV partners Petrobras and ONGC who have been capable of creating a successful project, delivering several hundred millions of barrels of oil, where this was hitherto considered impossible. We are proud of the many technologies this project advanced, the jobs it created and the investment it spurred.”
Stingl paid tribute to the team for delivering the highly complex Parque das Conchas project, on time, on budget, and without compromising on Shell’s safety and environmental standards.
The BC-10 Parque das Conchas is an ultra-deepwater heavy oil development offshore Brazil. The project was the result of a nine-year effort to unlock very challenging reserves, requiring the development and successful deployment of several technology firsts. It is the first of its kind based fully on subsea oil and gas separation and subsea pumping.
