Singapore’s Marine Contracting Pte Ltd has been awarded a contract to replace mooring and flexible riser systems on the “FPF-003” FPSO, located at the Jasmine Field offshore Thailand.
The contract has been awarded by Petrofac, and, according to a press release issued by Marine Contracting, the offshore part of the project will begin in June 2014.
As part of the contract, Marine Contracting Pte Ltd will provide Petrofac with project management, engineering, various procurement, logistics and offshore operations, to replace portions of the FPSO’s six mooring wires and the existing 8” flexible production riser.
Petrofac in January extended the lease for the FPSO which has been moored at the Mubadala Petroleum-operated Jasmine field, offshore Thailand, since 2004. Oil is produced from a multi-platform complex to the FPSO, where the crude oil is separated from water and gas and stored until it is lifted to a sales tanker.
Petrofac provides operations and maintenance services for the FPF3 through its Offshore Projects & Operations business, on behalf of Mubadala Petroleum. In December 2013, Petrofac celebrated the milestone of four years without a Lost Time Incident on the FPF3 vessel.
