Shell lets umbilical contract for Appomattox development

Shell Offshore Inc. has let a contract to Oceaneering International Inc., Houston, for the supply of umbilicals for the deepwater Appomattox development in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The order is for electro-hydraulic steel tube control umbilicals, totaling 60 km in length. Product manufacturing is planned to be performed at Oceaneering’s umbilical facility in Panama City, Fla., and is expected to start in this year’s fourth quarter and be completed in third-quarter 2017.

In July, Shell took a final investment decision on the Appomattox development, authorizing construction and installation of the company’s eighth and largest floating platform in the gulf (OGJ Online, July 1, 2015).
