Two business units of SembCorp Industries, SMOE and Sembawang Shipyard, have jointly completed the fabrication and integration of the topside facilities for a Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd.

The $50 million contract was awarded to SMOE and Sembawang Shipyard by Halliburton West Africa Limited on September 28, 2000. The project entailed the fabrication, assembly, installation, hook-up and commissioning assistance of the FPSO vessel's topside facilities comprising nine pre-assembled units. In addition, a flare tower and two pipe racks were fabricated and installed with a mooring support structure.

Designed to separate produced oil, water and gas, compress produced gas and treat produced water, the topside facilities can accommodate a total of 170,000 barrels of well fluids and 100 million standard cubic feet of gas per day. The vessel hull has an oil storage capacity of 1.4 million barrels.

Named ‘Sea Eagle’, the FPSO vessel is a key component of the EA Development Project operated by the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd. It will be located offshore Nigeria and is scheduled to start production in December 2002.

Said M P Premraj, Senior Vice President of SMOE and Project Sponsor: “We are happy to be partners with Halliburton West Africa Limited and the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd for this milestone FPSO project. All teams worked closely to complete the topside facilities on schedule. We have achieved an excellent safety record of 2.4 million manhours worked without a lost time injury for the project. We thank Halliburton West Africa Limited and the Shell Petroleum Development Company of Nigeria Ltd for their partnership with us." An official completion ceremony was held today in Sembawang Shipyard to celebrate the completion of the project.
