Singapore: Sembcorp Marine has announce that Jurong Shipyard Pte has landed a contract to convert a shuttle tanker into an FPSO vessel for OOGTK Libra GmbH & Co KG, a joint venture between Brazil’s Odebrecht Oil & Gas and Teekay Offshore.
The contract is valued at $696m and involves the conversion of Navion Norvegia, a shuttle tanker, with the work including detailed engineering, installation and integration of topside modules, installation of external turret and power generation, accommodation upgrading as well as extensive piping and electrical cabling works.
