Intermoor has completed final tensioning and chain cutting operations on the Turitella FPSO, for Shell’s Stones project, in the Gulf of Mexico (GOM). The FPSO will connect to subsea infrastructure approximately 9,500 ft underwater, which breaks the existing water-depth record for a production facility. The ultra-deepwater project is the first FPSO for Shell in the GOM, and the second FPSO in the GOM, overall. Intermoor’s scope of work consisted of final chain adjustments through the ILMC system, subsequent cut and removal of excess chain, and riser pull-in rope-stretching and transfer to the FPSO.
