PERTH, Australia -- The Galoc field FPSO vessel is now safely reconnected to the mooring and riser system, according to Galoc Production Co. The southwest portion of the hold back mooring system (HBMS) has also been installed and the FPSO will be connected after a final system inspection.
The company is currently testing the system on the FPSO. Replacements of the final sections of the risers will be completed shortly, the company says. GPC also plans to install the northeast leg of the HBMS.
Completion of re-instatement activities and re-start of production is anticipated next week.
