Keppel dispatches Guyana’s second FPSO
This follows Guyana’s first FPSO in 2019, also by Keppel O&M.
In a press release by Keppel Corporation, the second Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) was delivered to Guyana by Keppel Shipyard Ltd.
This follows the delivery of Guyana’s first FPSO by Keppel Offshore and Marina in 2019.
Keppel O&M CEO Chris Ong saw this achievement as Keppel O&M’s way of staying resilient despite the pandemic environment.
“Despite the operational challenges posed by COVID-19, we have been able to harness Keppel O&M’s strengths across the group to deliver the Liza Unity to our customer’s satisfaction. This is the 26th major project for SBM Offshore and is a testament to the strong partnership that we have forged over decades of collaboration since 1981 when Keppel delivered the world’s first FPSO conversion to them.”
Included in Keppel O&M’s work includes fabrication of topside modules, riser balcony, spread mooring and the umbilical support structures.
Work on the third FPSO unit is also underway for Guyana.
