Keppel’s BrasFELS Shipyard Delivers FPSO to MODEC
Keppel Offshore & Marine’s subsidiary Keppel FELS Brasil’s BrasFELS shipyard in Brazil has delivered the Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29, a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, to MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore), an EPCI arm of the MODEC group.
After its completion, the FPSO departed the shipyard recently for the Bananal Bay in Brazil.
Being the fifth FPSO project for MODEC, Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 will be subsequently deployed in the Tartaruga Verde and Tartaruga Mestiça Fields, in the Campos Basin, off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
“This is … BrasFELS’ 9th FPSO project for Brazil and it demonstrates our commitment and reliability in supporting the country’s oil and gas industry,” Kwok Kai Choong, CEO and President of Keppel FELS Brasil, commented.
BrasFELS’ workscope for the FPSO Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 included the fabrication of nine topside production modules as well as integration works.
The FPSO has a production capacity of 150,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) and 5 million cubic meters of gas per day, and a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels of oil.
