Sofec’s External Turret for FSO Benchamas 2

Sofec has been awarded a contract by MISC Offshore Floating Terminals (MOFT) to supply of an external turret for the Benchamas 2 floating, storage and offloading vessel (FSO) to be installed in the Gulf of Thailand.

Sofec will be responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction of the external turret including fabrication of the rigid arm supporting the turret head. The external turret will be
constructed in Malaysia with delivery planned for November 2017.

The turret will allow the FSO vessel to operate in high wind and wave environments.

The FSO Benchamas 2 will replace the existing FSO which was originally installed in 1999 and will be permanently moored with nine anchor legs arranged in a 3 x 3 configuration terminating at the seabed with piled anchors.

It will be connected to two 8” flexible risers for crude oil and one 6” flexible riser for fuel gas. The existing PLEM and anchor legs will be reused except for the top chain which will be replaced with a new section, the company explained.

The will be executed by Sofec’s Houston project team with support from its Singapore office.
