The ‘Power’ FPSO hull (Floating production storage and offloading) floated out from dock of the COSCO’s shipyards in Zhoushan, China in September, about 10 months after first steel cut.
Normally, the hull completion was expected to be complete in 12 months.
The company noted that the hull is a crucial HSE milestone as the construction was completed ahead of schedule and with no LTI’s in approximately 3 million working man-hours under TechnipFMC’s management of the project.
Moreover, the FPSO will be deployed at Energean’s Karish and Tanin fields offshore Israel.
The hull will remain at the shipyards’ berth as there are additional construction operations to be completed. After, the hull will sail to Sembcorp Marine’s Admiralty Yard in Singapore for the integration of the topsides planned later in 4Q.
As the company reported
The Karish Development project remains on track and on budget to deliver first gas in 1Q 2021.
