Kuala Lumpur: Deltamarin has signed a contract with Malaysian offshore giant Bumi Armada for the basic design of a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.
The FPSO will operate in the oil company EnQuest's Kraken field in the UK sector of the North Sea.
Deltamarin had earlier provided Bumi Armada with technical support for the conversion of an existing oil tanker into an FPSO in the Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) phase.
Deltamarin’s present scope of work covers the further development of the FEED phase material into a class approved full basic package including naval architecture, structural and strength analysis, steel outfitting, marine/utility and HVAC, accommodation, HSE and electric & instrumentation.
The turret-moored FPSO will have a storage capacity of 600,000 barrels. Main dimensions of the vessel are 285.41 m in length overall and 50 m in breadth.
The total contract value of Deltamarin’s basic design work, to be carried out over an estimated period of six months, is around EUR3.6m. [10/02/14]
