The oil/condensate separation module will increase the FPSO Energean Power’s liquid production capacity from 18,000 b/d to 32,000 b/d.
The project should allow Energean to raise gas production volumes from 2023 onwards and to optimize well and reservoir management at both Karish and the satellite Karish North development. Both fields have high liquid-gas ratios.
And increasing the FPSO’s HC liquid treatment capacity by 75% should lead to a more balanced distribution of offtake in each well over the fields’ lives, the company added, boosting their ultimate recovery factor.
KANFA’s scope covers project management, engineering, procurement, fabrication, and pre-commissioning for the new equipment at a specialized FPSO module and conversion yard.
The three-deck structure will be installed in summer 2023 with the FPSO in live mode, via a ship-to-ship heavy lift operation. It will comprise an oil separation train and a flash gas compressor package, identical to the original train and designed to operate in tandem.
Engineering has started at KANFA’s Oslo offices supported by Energean’s project execution and delivery team. During 2018-20, KANFA was an EPC subcontractor to TechnipFMC for the topsides process modules of the Energean Power M1/2/3 (inlet/gas trains/oil train), delivered in 1Q 2020 from Singapore.
