ABB Vetco Grey facility in Singapore will supply the trees and wellheads. ABB Offshore Systems in Nailsea, UK will supply the production controls. Prior to shipment, equipment system integration testing will be performed at ABB Vetco Grey.

The trees complete with provisions for dual ESP functions, wellheads, and controls are field packaged to meet the Mutineer Exeter field requirements.
