Shell Offshore Inc., a subsidiary of Shell plc, has signed a three-year contract with Audubon Engineering Company LP (Audubon), a leading provider of engineering, procurement, construction, and fabrication services, to provide brownfield engineering and procurement (EP) services for Shell's Mars Corridor.
The contract includes some of Shell's offshore assets in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, including the Mars, Olympus, Ursa, and Vito tension leg platforms, and has two one-year extension options. The water depths in this deep-water portfolio range between 3,000 and 4,000 feet (914 to 1,200 meters).
Topside engineering and procurement services are included in the contract, which includes single-well subsea tiebacks, crane, lifeboat, and HVAC replacements, controls, firewater system, and utility upgrades, gas-lift installation, and prefabricated skid packages.
The contract will be carried out by Audubon's strong local operating centers in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Houston, Texas. This deal builds on the company's history of providing Shell with integrated engineering and technical services.
We’re delighted that Shell has selected Audubon to be its contractor for these assets. We are committed to driving value and efficiency for Shell to further enhance and extend productivity across its assets in the Mars Corridor.”
