Octanex selects FPSO for Ophir oil field development offshore Malaysia


Dateline 2017-03-01, Your Oil and Gas News:

Octanex advises that a donor vessel has been secured for conversion into an FPSO for use on the Ophir field, with conversion works to commence shortly.

MTC Engineering (MTCE), an experienced Malaysian oil and gas marine contractor, has purchased an oil tanker, Puteri Bangsa, for conversion into the MTC Ledang FPSO. Engineering design works for the conversion are well advanced and conversion works on the tanker will shortly commence.

The MTC Ledang FPSO will have a small process facility module with capacity for 15,000 barrels of fluid per day and gas flaring and will be capable of storing up to 350,000 barrels of crude. It will be anchored to the seabed at the Ophir field and connected to the Ophir platform via a flexible 8” pipeline. It is contracted to be at the Ophir field at a competitive rate for a period of three years, with a one year extension option.
