Shell awards Subsea7 decommissioning work offshore Brazil
(WO) — Subsea7 has been awarded a sizeable contract by Shell for the decommissioning of subsea infrastructure associated with the FPSO Fluminense in the Bijupirá and Salema fields of the Campos Basin, at 700m (2,296 ft) water depth, the company said on Nov. 20.
Subsea7’s scope includes the disconnection, recovery, and disposal of 10 flexible risers, three umbilicals and nine mooring lines. Offshore works are planned to start in December 2023.
“Twenty years ago, Subsea7 installed the flexibles and umbilicals for Shell’s Bijupirá and Salema fields and, two decades later, we’re proud to be one of Shell’s chosen contractors to take part in the completion of this field’s life cycle,” Yann Cottart, Subsea7 Brazil vice president, said.
