Subsea 7 in Second Vito Win
Subsea 7 has been recently awarded a second construction contract for the Vito development in the Gulf of Mexico region.
The Vito field is located approximately 241 kilometers south of New Orleans, Louisiana, with water depths up to 1220 meters.
The latest contract was awarded by Enbridge Offshore Facilities, for the transportation and installation of 80 kilometers of 18-inch oil export pipelines, 27 kilometers of 10-inch gas export pipelines and 5 kilometers of associated steel catenary risers and pipeline end terminations.
Project management and engineering will take place in Houston, Texas, with support from Subsea 7’s offices in Glasgow, UK and Paris, France.
Offshore installation activities are scheduled for 2019 and 2020.
Subsea 7 is already providing project management, engineering, procurement, and installation services to Shell Vito, as part of a contract awarded and announced earlier this year.
Craig Broussard, Subsea 7 VP for the Gulf of Mexico, said: “This second Vito contract underlines Subsea 7’s reputation in the Gulf of Mexico for providing cost-effective solutions even in the most challenging deepwater environments. The choice of Subsea 7 as the contractor for the subsea scope of both awards enables additional efficiencies and seamless delivery.”
