The FPSO will produce gas from the Karish field in the Israeli sector of the Mediterranean Sea, operated by Energean.
The LQ module – 20 m (65.6 ft) long, 40 m (131 ft) wide, 26 m (85 ft) high and weighing 1,727 metric tons (1,904 tons) – has seven decks and will accommodate 70 people during normal operations in single occupancy cabins.
However, in periods of heavy maintenance, this could rise to 120 personnel by increasing most cabins of the cabins to double occupancy.
The pipe racks are designed to carry interface piping between the various modules and hull systems and to provide space for cable trays connecting the modules to the electrical house and instrument technical room.
Karish EPCIC contractor TechnipFMC has engaged Jumbo’s heavy lift crane vessel Fairplayer to lift and connect the vessel’s 14 pre-laid and wet-stored mooring lines to the FPSO Energean Power, after it has sailed from Singapore to Israel next summer.
Energean is targeting first gas in the second half of 2021.
