Sep 06 2019

Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine has recently secured a number of contracts involving VLCC, FSRU and FSU conversions, as well as FSRU upgrading work.

One contract, signed with joint venture companies of Shapoorji Pallonji Oil and Gas Private Limited and Bumi Armada Berhad, involves the conversion of a VLCC into an FPSO for deployment on the east coast of India.

The vessel will produce up to 90,000 barrels of oil per day and will have a 1.3 mill barrel storage facility.

This conversion project includes hull repairs and upgrading, as well as fabrication of at least three topside modules, which Sembcorp will install on the vessel. The work will be undertaken at the Tuas Boulevard yard, with delivery scheduled in the second half of 2021.
