The project includes the Leon and Castile fields, in the US Gulf of Mexico.
The contract scope includes the installation of three infield subsea pipeline systems, as well as the design and fabrication of subsea structures. Subsea development will consist of two pipeline systems for the Leon field, located in Keathley Canyon 686, and one pipeline system for the Castile field, located in Keathley Canyon 736.
The infield pipelines will produce and flow from wellsite PLETs to the Salamanca FPS in water depths ranging from 1,800 to 2,000 metres.
