Lufeng Development Company ANS, part of the Bluewater Group of Companies, has been awarded a contract from ConocoPhillips China Inc. (COPC) for the provision of the FPSO Munin to the Xijiang field, which is located in the South China Sea approximately 130 km offshore Hong Kong. The field is currently producing via the FPSO Nanhai Kai Tuo, which is scheduled to leave the field temporarily for dry-docking and maintenance services

The FPSO Munin will utilise its dynamic positioning capabilities to maintain position in the field. Risers will be connected to the existing submerged buoyant turret mooring, which is part of the existing mooring system of the Nanhai Kai Tuo. This unique solution was designed by Bluewater to reduce costs for this temporary production period. It will be the first time production will take place offshore China via a floating facility in full DP mode.

The Munin is currently producing oil from China’s Lufeng field, operated by Statoil Orient Inc in partnership with CNOOC The Munin will leave the Lufeng field in mid-August 2004 for dry-docking and adjustments before its scheduled arrival on the Xijiang field around October 1, 2004.
Owners of the Xijiang field are COPC, CNOOC China Limited Shenzhen, and several subsidiaries of Shell Oil Company.
