HOUSTON – SOFEC Inc. has completed the loadout of the turret for the FSO HYSY121 for the Lufeng field in the South China Sea.
The construction was completed at Penglai Jutal Offshore Engineering Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. in Penglai, China, in December. Integration into the FSO will take place in Shenzhen, China, beginning this month and is expected to be completed by March 31, 2020.
The turret system will be integrated into a replacement FSO and connected to the existing Lufeng 13-2 field mooring legs and submerged buoy, which were replaced in 2012 for a field life extension.
The company was responsible for all engineering, procurement, and construction activities for the turret and its ancillary components. Offshore hook-up and commissioning activities are planned during 1Q to 2Q 2020.
SOFEC originally designed and installed a disconnectable internal turret mooring system for this field in 1993.
