Siemens Energy to supply modules and support for FPSO offshore South America

22 Mar 2021

Siemens Energy has been awarded a topside EPC contract by MISC Berhad for eight complete topside modules that will provide sustainable, efficient and environmentally friendly power generation, transmission and distribution, as well as gas processing and compression aboard an FPSO that will operate offshore South America starting in 2024.

MISC Berhad is building the FPSO to expand its fleet of 14 floating production systems. The FPSO is expected to have a processing capacity of 180,000 barrels of oil and 12m cubic metres of gas per day.

The topside modules will be designed and manufactured across Asia, with main engineering and execution activities done through Singapore. Packaging for all the rotating equipment packages will occur at Siemens Energy’s Santa Barbara d’Oeste facility in Brazil. The facility is also fully equipped to provide support and service to the FPSO’s modules once it is deployed.

Siemens Energy’s scope of supply includes the EPC work for all eight modules and several key components: two electric, low-pressure centrifugal compressors; two electric, CO2 compressors; three main injection compressors driven by Siemens Energy SGT-A35-GT62X gas turbines; four Siemens Energy SGT-A35-GT30 gas turbines for power generation; an E-house; plus all electricals including an electrical control and management system (ECMS).

The ECMS is being designed to provide monitoring and supervision for the power generation and distribution network for load management of the FPSO facility, including topside and marine. MISC Berhad and the FPSO operator will use the ECMS to monitor FPSO power, generate reports and plan for future sustainability.
