Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine said its subsidiary Sembcorp Marine Rigs & Floaters has signed an order for the modification, repair and life extension of a floating production storage and offloading unit (FPSO).
The contract is estimated to be worth US$166 million. Customer is Varg L.L.C., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Teekay Offshore Partners and order involves engineering, procurement and construction works related to the work on the FPSO named Petrojarl Varg. Scheduled for completion in July 2020, the work scope includes detailed engineering, fabrication, installation and integration of the topside process skid; overhauling of existing internal turret and power generation; and repair and life extension of the vessel’s hull, tanks and various systems onboard. The FPSO Petrojarl Varg will be operated by Alpha Petroleum Resources Limited for deployment at the Cheviot field development and the Peel satellite accumulation, both of which are located within the United Kingdom Continental Shelf blocks in the North Sea.
