FPSO Petrojarl I upgrade in Damen’s hands

Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR), part of Damen Shiprepair & Conversion (DSC), has been awarded an EPC contract by Petrojarl I LLC for the upgrade of its FPSO Petrojarl I.

The Petrojarl I is a Teekay Petrojarl managed FPSO, built in 1986, which has been active in the North Sea. Its redeployment will be at the Atlanta field in Brazil.

The Petrojarl I is contracted by Queiroz Galvão Exploração e Produção (QGEP) for deployment at the Atlanta post-salt oil field in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil to produce heavy crude oil in a water depth of 1535m. For this deployment as an ‘early production system’, the FPSO will be upgraded at DSR.

According to Damen, the works consist of basic engineering, detailed and construction design and engineering, workshop drawings, interface engineering, marine & process equipment procurement, fabrication, construction, corrosion protection/coating, transport and lifting operations, integration, mechanical completion, performance testing and commissioning activities, and includes upgrades and modifications related to:

–    Marine, Hull and Life Extension according to Class;

–    Conversion of the process systems (i.e. separation train and produced water topsides) and integration;

–    Brazilian Compliance.

Partnerships with Frames and Nevesbu

Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam, responsible for the full upgrade of the FPSO, has formed  partnerships with Frames and Nevesbu. Frames, with its headquarters in Alphen aan den Rijn (the Netherlands), will carry out the design and fabrication of the new ‘Topside Skids’. Nevesbu, with its head offices in Alblasserdam (the Netherlands), will carry out the Marine, and Topside Integration Engineering.

The contract has been secured by and will be supervised by DSC’s ‘Offshore & Conversion’ task force team. Commercial Managers Ruud Haneveer and Bas Loohuis said: “This is again a unique project for Damen Shiprepair & Conversion. To our knowledge an EPC Redeployment Upgrade Contract has not been carried out in Europe before. We expect, by being responsible for the hull, the topside conversion and its integration, to offer Teekay a controlled situation with regards to safety, quality, budget and delivery time and herewith demonstrate to our future customers our EPC capabilities.”

Thomas van Tol, the appointed Project Manager said: “The oil and gas industry is subject to extremely high HSEQ requirements. This requires a professional project team. The experiences with past Oil & Gas projects, such as the ‘Gryphon A’ FPSO, also carried out by DSR, has made us ready for this task. Comprehensive design and engineering management for this project, will serve as the foundation for future major offshore projects.”

According to the press release, the Petrojarl I will be at the shipyard for approximately one year and will arrive early January 2015 at the yard.
