MODEC Inc., a Tokyo-based offshore platform expert, has been awarded the Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract for a new Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) system for Shell’s Gato do Mato offshore development project in Brazil’s ultra-deep sea. The FPSO will be located around 250 kilometers off the coast in water depths of approximately 2,000 meters, with MODEC responsible for designing the hull and associated topside facilities, including a SOFEC spread mooring system for mooring.

The Gato do Mato FPSO will serve as a storage facility for stabilized crude oil before transferring it to shuttle tankers for global markets. MODEC, with a proven track record in Brazil, has delivered sixteen FPSOs and currently has two more under construction. This project marks the second FPSO that MODEC has directly delivered to Shell for its Brazilian operations, showcasing a strong and enduring relationship between the two companies spanning over 20 years.

Hirohiko Miyata, President and CEO of MODEC, expressed pride in working on the company’s nineteenth FPSO for Brazil and the second for Shell in the country. Miyata emphasized the milestone as a testament to the enduring partnership between MODEC and Shell and expressed gratitude for the opportunity to conduct the FEED study for Shell’s Gato do Mato FPSO project.
