Fossil energy – Whale development
GATE Energy from Houston has been selected by Shell Offshore as the provider for facility commissioning of the Whale development.
This comes at the back of the current execution scope for the provision of commissioning services for Shell’s Vito facility that is currently underway.
The associated scope includes commissioning planning, onshore commissioning execution, and offshore commissioning / ready-for-startup services.
The Whale development is owned by Shell Offshore Inc. (60%, operator) and Chevron (40%); the field is located beneath more than 8,000 ft of water, approximately 200 miles southwest of Houston, and is currently scheduled to begin production in 2024.
