Bluewater Energy Services has been awarded a contract for the engineering, procurement, construction and integration (ECPI) of a major turret and mooring system for the Rosebank Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel.
Chevron’s £6billion Rosebank oil development west of Shetland is widely regarded as having the potential to unlock a region which holds a significant portion of the UK’s undeveloped oil and gas resources.
The turret and mooring system contract, which was awarded by Hyundai Heavy Idustries (HHI), will be a key component of the Rosebank FPSO.
Bluewater said the system will permanently anchor the FPSO at its offshore location and allow it to weathervane.
The company will supply the system for integration at the construction yard of HHI in Ulsan, South Korea, where the Rosebank FPSO will be fabricated.
The turret and mooring systems are expected to be about 80 metres in height, with a process manifold/turntable of about 34 metres in diameter.
Bluewater Energy Services will supply the system for integration at the construction yard of HHI in Ulsan, South Korea, where the Rosebank FPSO will be fabricated.
The core business of Bluewater is to design, engineer and install FPSO systems.
Rosebank was discovered in 2004 and is estimated to contain around 240MMboe recoverable.
