TMC delivers compressor system for Catcher FPSO

Compressor supplier Tamrotor Marine Compressors (TMC) has delivered a marine compressed air system to BW Offshore’s Catcher FPSO being built in Singapore.

TMC said on Thursday that it supplied a complete compressed air system consisting of three 185 kW instrument and service air compressors and two instrument and service adsorption air dryers.

According to BW Offshore’s Q4 2016 financial report released at the end of February, the Catcher FPSO is currently undergoing mechanical completion and commissioning at the Keppel yard in Singapore, which has also integrated the topside modules.

Before Keppel began work on the FPSO, the IHI Corporation designed, built, equipped, and completed the FPSO’s hull with accommodation, helideck, and parts of the turret mooring system at the Aichi Works shipyard in Japan.

Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC, said: “This is an impressive FPSO project which I believe most suppliers would have liked to be part of. We have delivered numerous compressor systems to the BW Group’s vessels over the years, so we are very familiar with the high standards they expect. Our cooperation with IHI has also contributed towards our successful on-time delivery to this FPSO.”

BW Offshore will operate the FPSO on a contract with Premier Oil at its Catcher oil field in the UK part of the North Sea. The FPSO has a processing capacity of 60,000 bopd and a storage capacity of 650,000 bbl. The sail-away date of the vessel from Singapore is expected to be mid-year.

The Catcher Area development is located 180 kilometers east of Aberdeen and includes the Catcher, Varadero, and Burgman oil and gas fields. The oil will be offloaded by tankers while the gas will be exported through the SEGAL facilities.
