Aqualis Offshore Scores Egina FPSO Positioning Gig

Samsung Heavy Industries has awarded Aqualis Offshore with the position keeping role for installation of the Egina FPSO offshore Nigeria.

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,” says Phil Lenox, director – Asia Pacific.

Total is the operator of the Egina field, which is located some 130 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria at water depths of more than 1,500 meters. The FPSO measures approximately 330 meters in length and is expected to have an oil storage capacity of approximately 2.3 million barrels of oil.
