Subsea 7 has announced the award of a contract by Shell for the Shearwater Fulmar Gas Line (FGL) Re-Plumb Project, located approximately 140 miles east of Aberdeen.
The engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) project workscope incorporates a 37 km 24 in. export line, a 14 in. rigid riser, control jumper, subsea structures and associated subsea tie-ins.
