Deltamarin designs FPSO conversion

29 Oct 2014

Deltamarin of Finland has entered into a contract with Jurong Shipyard of Singapore for the basic engineering of the Libra FPSO.

Deltamarin’s scope of work covers the marine part of the Navion Norvegia shuttle tanker conversion into the Libra FPSO. The conversion is being undertaken by Jurong for OOGTK Libra, a 50/50 joint venture between Odebrecht Oil & Gas and Teekay Offshore, working for Petrobras of Brazil. The vessel will serve the Libra pre-salt field in the ultra-deepwater section of Brazil’s Santos Basin as an early well-testing unit.

Completion is scheduled for the third quarter of 2016 and is planned to start operation in late 2016. The production capacity will be 50,000 barrels of oil and 4,000,000m3 of natural gas per day. The contract value of Deltamarin’s engineering work is about €3.2million, and the work is to be completed during the second quarter of 2015.

Deltamarin says the contract guarantees the continuation of its involvement in the project, having earlier participated in the outline phase design of the unit. “We are very happy to be a part of this fast track FPSO project and we strongly believe it will be a success for all parties. This contract shows the market’s strong belief in Deltamarin’s ability to perform in technically complex fast track offshore engineering projects”, said Deltamarin’s offshore director Oskari Jaakkola.
