Singapore-based Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel Shipyard, secured a contract from repeat customer Yinson for the modification of a floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

The contract is between Keppel Shipyard and Yinson Nepeta Production Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yinson Production Pte Ltd, for the fast-track modification and upgrading of FPSO Allan. Keppel Shipyard's scope of work includes refurbishment and life extension works, fabrication and installation of a new riser balcony, spread mooring system and helideck, as well as modification of the vessel's topsides and marine systems.

The project is scheduled to commence in the third quarter of 2019 with delivery expected in the first quarter of 2020. Upon completion, the FPSO will have a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels of oil and a processing capacity of 60,000 barrels of oil per day. It will be deployed in the Anyala and Madu fields, offshore Nigeria for First Exploration and Petroleum Development Co Ltd.

Eirik Barclay, CEO of Yinson Offshore Production, said, "We have chosen to partner with Keppel Shipyard for this fast-track upgrade project just as the market is showing a positive trend with an increasing number of both project awards and tenders."
