Modec enlists Semcorp to convert VLCC into Ghana-bound FPSO

20th October 2014

Jurong Shipyard, A Semcorp Marine subsidiary, has been contracted by Modec Offshore Production Systems to complete the repair, life extension, and conversion of a very large crude carrier (VLCC) into a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel as part of the Tullow-led TEN Development Project offshore Ghana

When completed in the fourth quarter of 2015, the TEN Development FPSO will have a capacity of production and treatment of 80,000 bpd of crude oil, 65,000 bpd of produced water, and 180 MMscfd of gas, with an on-board storage capacity of 1.7 million barrels. The facility will include for delivery 132,000 bpd of filtered, de-aerated seawater.

The TEN Development FPSO will be external turret moored in 1,000 to 1,800-metres water depth and operated by Modec, on behalf of its client Tullow Ghana, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tullow Oil.

The FPSO will host multiple subsea tiebacks from three reservoirs (Tweneboa, Enyenra, Ntomme) in the Deep Water Tano block off of the coast of Ghana, West Africa.

This is the twenty-second FPSO conversion project which Jurong Shipyard is working on with Modec.

The Tweneboa-Enyenra-Ntomme (TEN) fields cover an area of more than 800 square kilometres, and lies around 20 kilometres west of Tullow’s Jubilee field.
