Hyundai Heavy Industries held a naming ceremony for Kizomba-B FPSO ordered by ExxonMobil on December 2002 for $800 million.

Confindent in HHI's technological capabilities, the order was placed a year after Kizomba-A FPSO order in 2001. Kizomba-A FPSO was successfully completed and delivered to the sea of Angola in 2004.

HHI's unified construction and turnkey base method secured the order and became responsible for the hull, topside and the entire project management, engineering, procurement, construction, and test runs.

Also, the superior quality of the FPSO resulted in safe production and expedited delivery date. Now, HHI is not only recognized for shipbuilding, but has became a strong contender in the offshore construction market.

Kizomba-B FPSO measures 285m long, 63m wide and 32m deep. She can accommodate 100 people, produce 250,000 barrels of oil per day and store 2.2 million barrels of oil.

The FPSO is to be delivered on February 2005, six weeks earlier than scheduled, 370km west of Angola and 1,000m deep at sea bottom where oil production storage work will be accomplished.

The ceremony was attended by Mr. Ahn Choong-seung, president of HHI, Mr. Charles E. Field, executive vice president of ExxonMobil, Mr. Anidal Silver, vice minister of Oil Department of Angola and 200 other guests.
