CAIRO, Egypt — Burullus Gas Co., the joint venture in Egypt between Shell and EGPC, has awarded MCS Group subsidiary DeepTech work for the West Delta Deep Marine (WDDM) Phase X development in the Mediterranean Sea.

Under an EPIC partnership with The Petroleum Marine Services Co. (PMS), Deeptech will manage drilling and tie-in of the new Sapsat-3, Sepia-1, and Seagull West-1 wells in water depths of 430 m to 700 m.

All will be connected to existing subsea infrastructure as part of the Phase X expansion in the WDDM concession area. The three wells should start to come online during the second quarter. 

The work scope covers the FEED design verification engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation engineering, testing, pre-commissioning, and providing commissioning assistance to Burullus.

DeepTech will provide ROV intervention services and will draw on MCS Group's subsea engineering team to support the installation engineering, field layout, approach drawings, and subsea interface installation.
