Keppel Offshore & Marine's BrasFELS shipyard in Brazil has delivered the Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel to MODEC.

The FPSO was completed safely, on time and within budget, and departed the shipyard recently for Bananal Bay in Brazil. It will then be deployed in the Tartaruga Verde and Tartaruga Mestiça fields in the Campos Basin, off the coast of Rio de Janeiro.

It is BrasFELS' fifth collaboration with MODEC and BrasFELS' 9th FPSO project for Brazil.

BrasFELS' workscope for the Cidade de Campos dos Goytacazes MV29 included the fabrication of nine topside production modules as well as integration works. The FPSO has a production capacity of 150,000 b/d and 5 MMcm/d of natural gas, and a storage capacity of 1.6 MMbo.
