Singapore: Keppel Enters FPSO Upgrade Contract with Petrofac

 

Keppel Shipyard announces it has secured a fast-track project for the upgrading of a FPSO vessel from Petrofac International (UAE) LLC, a subsidiary of Petrofac. The upgrading of the ex-FPSO East Fortune includes refurbishment and life extension works, engineering, fabricating, installing and integrating new topside process modules, upgrading of spread mooring and auxiliary support systems.

Work has commenced in 1Q 2011. Designated for an oil and gas field offshore Peninsular Malaysia, this FPSO facility will be able to handle both oil and gas production.

Keppel O&M, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Keppel Corporation Limited, is a leader in offshore rig design, repair and construction, ship repair and conversion and specialised shipbuilding. Its near market, near customer strategy is bolstered by a global network of 20 yards in the Asia Pacific, Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, the Caspian Sea, Middle East and the North Sea regions. Integrating the experience and expertise of its yards worldwide, the group aims to be the provider of choice and partner for solutions for the offshore and marine industry.

As earlier announced, Keppel has also entered contract with SBM offshore for the construction of new multi-purpose dive support construction vessel.

Mr Nelson Yeo, Managing Director (Marine) of Keppel O&M, said, “These new contracts reflect the confidence of our customers in the capabilities of the Keppel O&M group. We are proud of the solid partnerships built with faithful customers who turn to our yards worldwide for their fleet expansion and upgrading needs.

“Looking ahead, I am confident that we will continue to strengthen the mutual trust and partnership with SBM Offshore and Petrofac with Keppel’s commitment to quality and reliability.”
