Flintstone Provides Mooring for Tullow’s FPSO Off Ghana
Flintstone Technology has secured a substantial contract with MODEC for its in-line tensioning and pull through connection mooring system to be deployed off West Africa.
The system will be used on Tullow Oil’s Kwame Nkrumah MV21 floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel located on the Jubilee field off the coast of Ghana, the company informed.
The mooring system will allow the conversion of the FPSO to a spread moored configuration.
Flintstone managing director Andrew Clayson said: “We are very pleased to see our technology being used to provide a solution to what is a complex and challenging situation with the existing mooring arrangement. We look forward to working with MODEC and Tullow on the project.”
The Kwame Nkrumah MV21 is installed in approximately 1,100 meters water depth on the Jubilee field, which is one of the largest oil fields discovered offshore West Africa in the past 10 years.
