Shell Parque das Conchas (BC-10)

Shell BC-10

Brazil, Espirito Santo State, Campos Basin, Block BC-10

Landmark: The Shell Parque das Conchas is the first subsea system with gas/liquid separation and boosting. 

The Shell BC-10 block is located approximately 75 miles (120 km) southeast of the coastal city of Vitoria, in the state of Espirito Santo in water depths ranging from 4,920 to 6,562 ft (1,500 to 2,000 meters). This development project was the first full field development based on subsea oil and gas separation and subsea pumping in Brazil. The subsea systems for Parque das Conchas were engineered and
manufactured at FMC Technologies’ facility in Rio de Janeiro and will utilize FMC Technologies' globally managed product standards, supporting supply networks and project management processes.

The first phase of the project included the development of three fields tied back to the FPSO, via subsea wells and manifolds. The fields came on-stream in July 2009. Read about bringing Brazil online.
