Aqualis Offshore Wins Egina Job

Thursday, August 9, 2018

Aqualis Offshore has been awarded a contract for the “keeping role” for the installation of the Egina FPSO offshore Nigeria. While the field is operated by Total, the contract came from the EPCIC contractor Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI).

The newbuild Egina FPSO was towed from South Korea and arrived in Nigeria in late January for final integration of topside modules built in Lagos.

Once the FPSO is located at the Egina field, Aqualis Offshore will manage the position keeping procedure and provide position keeping masters offshore while it is being connected to the pre-installed mooring spread. In total, the Egina FPSO will be spread moored on 16 mooring lines (4×4).

“Having last year successfully managed the position keeping roles for the Icthys Venturer FPSO and Ichthys Explorer central processing facility, we are no stranger to installing large offshore structures. We look forward to supporting SHI and Total with the Egina FPSO, which is a challenging deepwater field development,” said Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific, Aqualis Offshore.
