Dril-Quip awarded LoI for Sea Lion subsea production systems

Dril-Quip in Aberdeen has a letter of intent with Premier Oil to provide subsea production systems for the Sea Lion Phase 1 development offshore the Falkland Islands. 


The scope of supply covers 23 subsea production systems, including wellheads, trees, control, associated production and injection manifolds, subsea umbilicals and related services.


Dril-Quip expects to start pre-sanction engineering work in August, with the formal contract award subject to agreement of a definitive contract and Premier and partner Rockhopper taking a final investment decision on the project. 


In addition, Dril-Quip would provide vendor financing for part of the contract.


Blake DeBerry, the company’s president and CEO, said: “We believe that our new product development efforts with respect to our subsea tree products were instrumental in our ability to satisfy Premier’s requirements.

“Also, our strong balance sheet allows us to provide Premier with vendor financing for a portion of the contract which is consistent with our overall strategy.


Dril-Quip (Europe) has enjoyed a successful relationship with Premier that includes providing multiple subsea completion systems for Premier’s Catcher Area development project in the North Sea.”
