Sembcorp Marine’s Brazilian shipyard, Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz, has completed the construction works on its first floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) project.

The vessel is constructed for Tupi B.V., a consortium comprising Petrobras Netherlands B.V., Total Brazil Services B.V., BG Gas Netherlands Holdings B.V. and Galp Sinopec Brazil Services B.V.

Petrobras P-68 FPSO left the shipyard on September 16 and will be deployed to the ultra-deepwater Berbigão and Sururu fields in Brazil’s Santos Basin.

With a length of 316 meters and a width of 54 meters, the P-68 will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD). It has a 1.6-million-barrel storage capacity and can accommodate 154 persons.

EJA’s P-68 work scope includes fabricating six modules, pipe-racks and a flare, and integrating them on the vessel along with other free issue items. It also executed carry-over works on the FPSO’s hull, which was built by another shipyard.

Following P-68, EJA will complete the P-71 FPSO modules fabrication and integration project for Tupi B.V.
