The modules will be transported from Aibel’s yard in Thailand to Singapore, where they will be integrated on to a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, before the FPSO is installed offshore Ghana.
The TEN development will comprise up to 24 development wells connected to the TEN MV25 FPSO, moored in about 1500m water. Offshore installation is due to start in 2015 and be completed in the second half of 2016.
“We are very pleased to continue our good relationship with MODEC here in South East Asia. This project follows on from Tupi, Guara and OSX-3 and we expect additional projects from MODEC in the future,” says Nick Routledge, VP Operations and Business Development Aibel Asia (pictured).
