Sembcorp Marine Ltd is pleased to announce that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters Pte. Ltd., has been awarded a contract by Shell Offshore Inc.

This contract includes installation of Shell-furnished equipment, and follows a Letter of Intent between the two parties announced on December 5, 2017.

The Vito host will be located at a water depth of 1,234m in the Mississippi Canyon Block 984 in the Gulf of Mexico, 241km south of New Orleans, Louisiana, in the US.

Mr William Gu, Sembcorp Marine Senior Vice President and Head of Rigs & Floaters, said, We are delighted that Shell has awarded the Vito FPU contract to us. We are fully committed to executing and delivering the project safely and efficiently.
