Brasfels modev FPSO Carioca MV30

 The Brasfels Shipyard signed today (22) the contract for the construction of the Topside module and integration of the FPSO Carioca MV30!

In Brazil, the BrasFELS shipyard, Keppel FELS Brasil Ltda (Keppel FELS Brasil) was hired TODAY, JULY 22, 2018 by its long-standing client, MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore) Pte Ltd., part of the MODEC, Inc. group. (collectively “MODEC”), to undertake topside module fabrication and integration of FPSO Carioca MV30, a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel. This is the sixth FPSO collaboration between Keppel FELS Brasil and MODEC.

In Singapore, Keppel Shipyard Ltd was commissioned with the conversion of an LNG Carrier to a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) by a leading global operator of oil and gas production vessels.

Chris Ong, CEO of Keppel O&M, said: “Keppel O&M has a strong track record in production, storage, gasification or liquefaction vessels, having successfully delivered over 130 of these units over the years.

“The FPSO Carioca MV30 is our 11th FPSO project for Brazil and, as the most established shipyard in Brazil, BrasFELS is well positioned to deliver it to the executive excellence of Keppel O&M. , this is our fourth contract FSRU conversion and forms part of our comprehensive suite of gas value chain solutions.”

Works will begin in 2018

The BrasFELS shipyard, a Keppel FELS Brasil unit in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will start manufacturing the FPSO modules in 4Q 2018. When completed, FPSO Carioca MV30 will have the capacity to process 180 barrels of crude oil per day (bpd) and 212 million cubic meters of gas per day. The unit's storage capacity is 1,4 million barrels of crude oil. The FPSO will be deployed in the Sepia field, located in the pre-salt region of the Santos Basin, approximately 250 kilometers off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Mr. Sateesh Dev, President and CEO of MODEC Pte Ltd., said: “Brazil continues to increase its production capacity to exploit its significant oil and gas reserves. MODEC is committed to supporting the country's energy aspirations and is pleased to have a good partner in the Keppel Group to support us on this journey. In fact, BrasFELS has been our shipyard of choice in Brazil because of its reliability, cost-efficiency and ability to meet our needs.”

For the FSRU conversion project, in addition to repair and life extension work, Keppel Shipyard will carry out engineering, installation and shipyard integration of the regasification module and modernization of the cargo handling system. Due for delivery in late 2018, the FSRU will be capable of regasifying up to 750 million standard cubic feet of natural gas per day.

Keppel Shipyard has already delivered three FSRUs, including the world's first FSRU conversion. With the increasing demand for LNG in power generation, FSRUs are a fast, flexible, cost-effective, secure storage, regasification and protection solution that is suitable for deployment in remote areas with lower power needs. The world's first converted FLNG vessel, Hilli Episeyo, has reached final acceptance and commenced commercial operations for Perenco in Cameroon. This was accomplished within four years of awarding the contract to the Keppel shipyard.

The above agreements are not expected to have a material impact on Keppel Corporation Limited's net tangible assets or earnings per share for the current financial year.
