Successful lifts for Karish field FPSO
Energean reports that the living quarter (LQ) module and eight pipe rack modules have been successfully lifted on to the Energean Power FPSO hull at Sembcorp’s Admiralty Yard, Singapore.
Weighing in at 1,727 tonnes, with seven decks, the LQ module is designed to accommodate 70 people during normal operations in single occupancy. This can be increased to 120 people during heavy maintenance periods by increasing most cabins to double occupancy.
The pipe rack modules, each weighing between 120 and 210 tonnes, are designed to carry interface piping between the various modules and hull systems and provide space for the location of cable trays connecting the modules to the electrical house and instrument technical room.
The FPSO is due to sail to the Karish field, offshore Israel, in summer 2021. First gas is expected in 2H2021.
