EnQuest: Kraken FPSO leaves shipyard in Singapore for deepwater anchorage

Oil and gas company EnQuest has reported that the Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Kraken development has left Keppel Offshore & Marine’s shipyard in Singapore heading to deepwater anchorage. 

According to an update from EnQuest on Monday, the vessel, named Armada Kraken FPSO, has completed its shore-based commissioning activities at the quayside in Singapore and has also completed the vessel’s inclination testing program.

Armada Kraken, a harsh-environment FPSO, will be deployed to produce the heavy oil found in the EnQuest-operated Kraken field in the UK sector of the North Sea.

The FPSO has left the yard and is now sailing to deepwater anchorage, to undertake commissioning work on the water injection pumps, HSP power fluid pumps, sulfate reduction packages, lifeboats, and fire, water and deluge systems.

EnQuest added that the FPSO is on schedule to sail away to the North Sea during this quarter as planned. The journey should take approximately 50 days, bringing the vessel to the Kraken field on course for first oil in 1H 2017.
