Prosafe announces that the FPSO Umuroa has commenced production on the Tui field in the Taranaki basin offshore New Zealand on 30 July 2007.

Prosafe converted a Suezmax to the FPSO Umuroa, and was responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning. Prosafe holds an initial five-year operating contract with five additional one-year options. Australian Worldwide Exploration Limited is the operator of the field with a 42.5 percent working interest. Partners are Mitsui E&P (35%), New Zealand Oil & Gas (12.5%) and Pan Pacific Petroleum (10%).

The FPSO Umuroa is capable of processing up to 50 000 barrels of oil per day, 118 000 barrels of water per day and 120 000 barrels of total fluid per day, has a storage capacity of approximately 773 000 barrels and a gas compression capacity of 25 mmscfd. She is turret moored in a water depth of 120 meters using Prosafe’s in-house developed turret/swivel technology.

After good cooperation with Australian Worldwide Exploration Limited, Mitsui E&P, New Zealand Oil & Gas and Pan Pacific Petroleum throughout the project phase, Prosafe looks now forward to conducting successful and safe operations at the Tui field.
