GOM - Sembcorp Marine delivers giant platform for Shell’s Gulf of Mexico project
Sembcorp Marine has completed the Vito Regional Production Facility (Vito RPF) for Shell's deepwater project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
Vito is a Shell-operated deepwater development in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico sanctioned in April 2018. Located over four blocks in the Mississippi Canyon area of the Gulf of Mexico, the Vito development will consist of eight subsea wells with deep (18,000 feet) in-well gas lift.
Shell selected Sembcorp Marine to build and integrate the hull, topsides, and living quarters of the Vito semi-submersible unit in May 2018.
The Vito RPF is Sembcorp Marine’s first floating production unit (FPU). It was delivered by the company’s Tuas Boulevard Yard. As previously reported, the integration of mega-topsides with a hull for the Vito unit was completed in October 2021.
