Sembcorp Marine’s Brazilian shipyard completes Petrobras FPSO

Sembcorp Marine’s wholly-owned and operated subsidiary Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA) has crossed a significant operational milestone with the completion of its first floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) project.

P-68, a newbuild FPSO vessel, left the shipyard in mid-September 201 and will be deployed to the ultra-deepwater Berbigão and Sururu fields in Brazil’s Santos Basin.

The vessel is constructed for Tupi BV, a consortium comprising Petrobras Netherlands, Total Brazil Services, BG Gas Netherlands Holdings BV (“Shell”) and Galp Sinopec Brazil Services BV (“Petrogal”).

Measuring 316m in length and 54m in width, P-68 will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD). It has a 1.6-million-barrel storage capacity and can accommodate 154 persons.

EJA’s P-68 work scope includes fabricating six modules, pipe-racks and a flare, and integrating them on the vessel along with other free issue items. It also executed carry-over works on the FPSO’s hull, which was built by another shipyard
