SINGAPORE -- Keppel Shipyard is on schedule to complete conversion of the FPSO Aseng, which has been chartered by Noble Energy.

The vessel, which will serve on the Aseng field offshore Equatorial Guinea, will be operated by Aseng Production Co., a joint venture between SBM Offshore and state-owned Compania Nacional de Petroleo de Guinea Ecuatorial (GEPetrol).

FPSO Aseng will be capable of processing 80,000 b/d of oil and storing roughly 1.7 MMbbl. Keppel's work scope included refurbishment and life extension, upgrading the accommodation facilities, installing and integrating the topsides, and fabricating and integrating the internal turret.

Since 2000, Keppel and SBM have jointly delivered 13 FPSO/FSO conversion projects – this is their second FPSO assignment for Equatorial Guinea.
