Technip has been awarded a topsides detailed engineering and procurement services contract by Jurong Shipyard. The project is part of the conversion of a shuttle tanker into a floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel built at the Jurong Shipyard in Singapore.
Technip will build on its experience in full range of offshore facilities to design the FPSO’s topsides. The FPSO will be based in the Libra field offshore Brazil at a water depth of approximately 2,500m. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 50,000 barrels of oil per day and 4MCM of natural gas per day.
Technip’s operating centre in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, will execute the contract, which is scheduled for completion during the second semester of 2016.
KK Lim, president of Technip in Asia Pacific, commented: “We are pleased to engineer the topsides of this FPSO that would be used for work on the Libra field in the ultra-deepwater section of Brazil’s Santos Basin. It demonstrates the trust of our client in Technip’s technical strength and extensive knowledge in this kind of floating platform, having delivered some of the largest FPSO units in the world.”
