Bumi Armada orders Dyna-Mac FPSO topsides modules
Singapore’s Dyna-Mac has secured a Letter of Award valued at S$60 million for the construction of 6 units of FPSO topsides modules for Malaysia’s Bumi Armada.
Dyna-Mac, which has yards spanning across Singapore, Malaysia and China, will provide detailed engineering and the fabrication of 6 topsides modules for an FPSO vessel that will be deployed at Eni’s Block 15/06 East Hub field, located 350 km northeast of Luanda in deep water offshore Angola.
The topsides FPSO modules are scheduled to be delivered progressively to the owner within the first quarter of 2016. The FPSO will be capable of crude oil production rate of 80,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) with a storage capacity of 1,800,000 barrels and 120,000 barrels per day (bpd) of water injection and 120 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) of gas handling capacities.
The 4th generation FPSO, currently undergoing conversion from a very large crude carrier will have a topside weight of 15,000 tonnes and will be moored at a water depth of 450 meters. First oil is expected in the fourth quarter of 2016.
