Singapore: Offshore services company Ezra Holdings has announced that its subsidiary, London Marine Consultants (LMC), has been awarded a $110m contract by Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard to supply an external turret mooring system for the Libra field’s extended well test (EWT) FPSO vessel.
The Libra oil field is a large, ultra-deepwater oil prospect located in the Santos Basin, about 230 kilometres off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. OOGTK Libra GmbH & Co KG, a jv between Brazil’s Odebrecht Oil & Gas and Teekay Offshore, awarded a contract to Jurong Shipyard for conversion of the Navion Norvegia shuttle tanker to form the Libra EWT FPSO.
The contact scope for London Marine Consultants includes engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the complete external turret. LMC will also design the mooring lines, analyse the risers and provide engineering support for integration of the turret and swivel stack onto the FPSO at Jurong Shipyard.
“This contract highlights our diverse capabilities in the offshore oil and gas industry. We acquired LMC back in 2008 to enhance our engineering capabilities for the offshore oil and gas value chain, and this has enabled more business opportunities for us,” commented Lionel Lee, ceo and managing director of Ezra Holdings.
The turret fabrication is planned for Triyards in Vietnam, another subsidiary of Ezra Holdings. [12/01/14]
