SINGAPORE – Keppel Offshore & Marine subsidiaries have secured two offshore construction contracts with a combined value of around S$70 million ($51 million).
MODEC has commissioned Keppel FELS to perform fabrication and integration of the topsides for theFPSOCarioca MV30.
This will be the sixth FPSO collaboration between the two parties.
The BrasFELS shipyard in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, will start fabrication of the modules during 4Q. When completed, the vessel will have capacity to process 180,000 b/d of crude and 212 MMcm/d of gas, with a crude storage capacity of 1.4 MMbbl.
The FPSO will be deployed at theSepia field in the presalt Santos basin, 250 km (155 mi) off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.
In Singapore, Keppel Shipyard will convert an LNG carrier to a floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU) for an unnamed global operator of oil and gas production vessels.
Aside from repair and life extension works, the scope involves shipyard engineering, installation and integration of the re-gasification module, and upgrading of the cargo handling system.
The FSRU, scheduled for delivery at the end of this year, will be able to re-gasify up to 750 MMcf/d of natural gas.
Keppel Shipyard previously delivered three FSRUs, including the world’s first FSRU conversion.
