The final two modules for Equinor’s Johan Castberg FPSO turret mooring system have sailed away from Dubai to Singapore.
SBM Offshore mentioned on Monday that the modules have been heading to Singapore to be built-in into the hull of the Johan Castberg FPSO, which is being constructed by Sembcorp Marine. Kvaerner is answerable for constructing the topsides.
SBM was employed by Equinor in late 2017 to ship a large-scale turret mooring system for the Johan Castberg FPSO. SBM then awarded a contract to Dubai’s Drydocks World to construct elements of that turret mooring system.
According SBM, the sailaway of the 2 modules represents the profitable completion of the modules fabrication part.
Michael Sandberg, SBM Offshore senior undertaking supervisor, mentioned: “We are delighted to have accomplished this milestone for the Johan Castberg undertaking”.
Drydocks World Dubai (DDW) fabricated all 4 modules for the turret mooring system (TMS). The first two modules, the bogie help construction and the decrease turret, have been accomplished in 2019 and delivered to the Singapore yard in 2019/2020.
The manifold and gantry modules have been accomplished and loaded onto the transportation vessel in mid-April, and supply to the Singapore yard is anticipated in May.
As for the turret
design, it’s an eight,000-tonne bogie turret accommodating 21 riser slots. The FPSO
Johan Castberg will function on the Skrugard, Havis, and Drivis discoveries in
the cruel working situations of the Barents Sea, offshore northern Norway.
The FPSO will
be completely moored in 372-meter water depth using three bundles of 5
The TMS permits the FPSO to securely keep in place on the sector within the excessive climate situations whereas making certain secure operations and the switch of fluids from the seabed through the risers to the FPSO.
