First topsides module lift on to Energean FPSO
The first topsides module lift on to the Energean Power FPSO hull has completed at Sembcorp Marine’s Admiralty Yard in Singapore.
The 850-tonne electrical house (E-house), which contains all the FPSO control equipment and electrical switchgear, was lifted onto the Energean Power hull using the L-801 barge pontoon crane.
The FPSO will be used to develop all Energean’s fields offshore Israel. It will be installed 90 km offshore and be the first FPSO ever to operate in the Eastern Mediterranean. It will have a gas treatment capacity of 800mn cf/d and liquids storage capacity of 800,000 barrels.
Installation of the mooring lines is now in progress and the project remains on track to deliver first gas in 2H2021.
Earlier in the month, the FPSO’s suction anchors were installed by the heavy lift construction vessel Fairprayer, at the 267mn boe 2P Karish field, in water depths ranging from 1,695 to 1,763 metres.
