ROTTERDAM, the Netherlands — MODEC has contracted Jumbo Offshore Installation Contractors to perform pre-installation of the mooring spread of the FPSO Errea Wittu at Exxon Mobil’s Uaru Field offshore Guyana.
The FPSO, which will have a crude storage capacity of 2 MMbbl, will produce about 250,000 bbl/d of oil, with gas treatment of up to 540 MMcf/d and water injection capacity of 350,000 bbl/d.
Exxon Mobil awarded MODEC the EPCI scope for the FPSO last May after the partners took FID on the project. MODEC subsidiary SOFEC will fabricate the mooring system, comprising 19 mooring legs.
Jumbo Offshore will deploy its heavy-lift construction vessel Fairplayer for the campaign, which will transport and install the 19 suction anchors, 8,800 m of chain sections and 43,168 m of polyester rope.
