Keppel awarded product barge upgrade contract

Singapore’s Keppel Offshore & Marine has secured a S$30m ($21.7m) contract from KrisEnergy for the modification and upgrading of a production barge for the oil major’s subsidiary SJ Production Barge.

The scope of work includes installation of a power generation module, electrical house, new accommodation units and other refurbishment works.

The production barge will be capable of processing up to 30,000 barrels of fluid per day, and equipped with gas, oil and water separation facilities. It will be deployed in the Apsara oil field, in the Gulf of Thailand after completion in the third quarter in 2019. The field is Cambodia’s first hydrocarbon development.

“With a strong track record in refurbishment, modification and upgrading projects, Keppel Shipyard is well-positioned to engineer and execute a broad range of solutions for a variety of vessels. The new contract from KrisEnergy marks our first project together since Keppel O&M’s appointment earlier this year as its preferred partner for a comprehensive suite of offshore oil and gas solutions,” said Chor How Jat, managing director of Keppel Shipyard.
