FPSO Bleo Holm gets more time with Repsol Sinopec

bleo-holmBluewater, a provider of floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, has been awarded a one-year contract extension for the FPSO Bleo Holm. 

The FPSO Bleo Holm has been working for Repsol Sinopec Resources UK, previously Talisman Energy, in the UK sector of the North Sea since 1999.

The vessel is producing at the Ross, Parry, and Blake fields. It is located in a water depth of 110m (360 ft) in block 13/28a on the UKCS, 72 miles (116km) North East of Aberdeen.

Bluewater said on Tuesday that the extension was agreed at the existing contract terms. With this extension, the firm contract period has been extended up to June 30, 2018.

The Bleo Holm is the sixth Bluewater designed, built, owned and operated FPSO installation. It is based on a purpose build tanker mono hull, which was constructed at Hitachi Yard in Japan.

The vessel has a double hull, double sides, double bottom, a bulbous bow and weighs 105,000 dead weight tons. The unit is 242.3 meters long and it can accommodate 90 persons.

In addition to the Blake field, the FPSO Bleo Holm will also be used to develop the i3 Energy-operated Liberator field, which is adjacent to Blake.

Namely, i3 Energy recently submitted its Environmental Statement and development plan for the Liberator field to the UK authorities. According to the plan, the Liberator will be tied into the existing Blake field ‘host’ infrastructure and produced through the Bleo Holm FPSO.
