Maersk Chooses MODEC FSO for Culzean

Tokyo-based floating production systems specialist MODEC Inc. has signed a contract with Maersk Oil North Sea UK Limited to supply a Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) vessel for the Culzean development project in the North Sea.

MODEC is responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the FSO. SOFEC, Inc., a subsidiary of MODEC, will design and supply the Internal Turret mooring system.

The FSO will have receiving capacity of 25,000 barrels of condensate per day and storage capacity of 350,000 barrels. The complete unit will be delivered to Maersk Oil UK in the first half of 2018.

This FSO will be deployed at the Culzean field approximately 145 miles (233 kilometers) off the coast of Aberdeen in water depth of around 295 feet (90 meters). The Culzean field is operated by Maersk Oil UK with co-venturers JX Nippon Exploration & Production (UK) Limited and BP.

“We are very honored to be awarded the contract for supply of the FSO by Maersk Oil,” said Toshiro Miyazaki, President and CEO of MODEC.

“This new contract represents a significant milestone for MODEC in gaining entry into the important North Sea oil and gas industry.”
