HOUSTON -- Shell has awarded FMC Technologies a contract to supply subsea systems for the Parque das Conchas Phase II project, offshore Brazil.
FMC's scope of supply will include 11 subsea trees rated at 10,000 psi and two production manifolds. The company will also supply an artificial lift manifold containing four subsea gas/liquid separation and boosting modules, as well as related subsea controls. The subsea system will be engineered and manufactured at FMC Technologies' facility in Rio de Janeiro. Deliveries are scheduled for 2012.
Also known as the BC-10 Phase II development, the project is an expansion of the original block located offshore Brazil in water depths ranging from 5,000 to 6,500 ft (1,500 to 2,000 m). FMC Technologies was awarded Phase I in 2006 and supplied the subsea systems, including separation and boosting modules to Shell.
