French oilfield services firm Technip reported Tuesday that it has been awarded a topsides engineering and procurement services contract by Singapore's Jurong Shipyard Pte Ltd.
The project will see the conversion of a shuttle tanker into a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO), which will be built at the Jurong Shipyard.
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 2,500 meters. Once completed, it will have a capacity of 50,000 barrels of oil per day and 4 million cubic meters of natural gas per day.
Technip’s operating center 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 the Asia Pacific region, commented in a company statement:
"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."
