Galoc FPSO's Mooring and Riser System Still Undergoing Work

Galoc Production Company advised that re-instatement of the Mooring and Riser System following the weather related disconnection undertaken in late June is continuing. Progress has been delayed due to a combination of sea conditions exceeding those necessary to safely undertake the subsea operations and downtime of equipment necessary to perform these operations.

The mooring and riser system has been re-orientated and preparations are in hand to change out the section of riser that was deformed. Once completed, the system will be reconnected to the FPSO and function tested prior to resuming production operations.

The mooring and riser system is a key component of the overall FPSO system which is provided by Rubicon Offshore International under the provisions of an operated lease / service contract.

The Galoc field is located in Service Contract SC14-C (Galoc Sub Block) in 290m of water approximately 65km north west of Palawan in the Republic of the Philippines.
