Keppel O&M wins FSRU conversion, FPSO modules deals
Keppel Offshore & Marine has, through its units, secured two contracts with a combined value of about S$70 million ($51.4 million).
In Singapore, Keppel Shipyard has been entrusted with the conversion of an LNG carrier to a floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) by a leading global operator of oil and gas production vessels.
In Brazil, Keppel FELS Brasil has been contracted by MODEC Offshore Production Systems, part of the MODEC group, to undertake the topside module fabrication and integration of the FPSO Carioca MV30. This is the sixth FPSO collaboration between Keppel FELS Brasil and MODEC.
For the FSRU conversion project, apart from repair and life extension works, Keppel Shipyard will undertake shipyard engineering, installation and integration of the regasification module and upgrading of the cargo handling system.
Scheduled for delivery at the end of 2018, the FSRU will be capable of re-gasifying up to 750 million metric standard cubic feet of natural gas per day.
For the FPSO project, BrasFELS shipyard, Keppel FELS Brasil’s facility in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will commence the fabrication of the modules in the fourth quarter of 2018.
When completed, FPSO Carioca MV30 will have the capacity to process 180,000 barrels of crude oil per day (bopd) and 212 million cubic metres of gas per day, and will be deployed at the Sepia field, which is located in the pre-salt region in the Santos Basin, some 250 kilometres off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
