Seatrium Limited has announced that it has inked a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Shell to explore and strengthen collaboration opportunities in floating production systems through leveraging both parties’ deep engineering capabilities and technologies.

The MoU, which focuses on driving project standardisation and replication, seeks to promote best practices in the design and construction of floating production systems. Both parties intend to leverage their experience and know-how from previous projects to mature and realise further benefits of replication, tapping on each other’s competencies and technologies and incorporating lessons learned from past projects.

Seatrium and Shell have worked together on various projects over the years, including the recently-announced Sparta floating production unit (FPU), which is conceived as a replicable project to leverage the group’s topsides single lift integration methodology, following the fabrication of Vito and Whale FPU newbuilds in 2021 and 2023 respectively.

Mr William Gu, Executive Vice President of Seatrium Oil & Gas (International), said, “We are pleased to deepen our collaboration with Shell, leveraging both parties’ competencies and technologies in past floating production systems projects. We look forward to continue working with Shell to mutually learn and develop best-in-class project management practices to achieve operational efficiency in future floater projects, benefitting both parties.”
