KEPPEL TO UPGRADE YINSON’S FPSO ALLAN

Keppel Shipyard and Yinson Nepeta Production, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Yinson Production, signed a contract for the fast-track modification and upgrading of FPSO Allan. Keppel Shipyard's scope of work includes refurbishment and life extension works, fabrication and installation of a new riser balcony, spread mooring system and helideck, as well as modification of the vessel's topsides and marine systems.
The project for Yinson is scheduled to commence in 3Q 2019 with delivery expected in 1Q 2020. Upon completion, the FPSO will have a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels of oil and a processing capacity of 60,000 barrels of oil per day. It will be deployed in the Anyala and Madu fields, offshore Nigeria for First Exploration and Petroleum Development Co Ltd.
Mr Eirik Barclay, CEO of Yinson Offshore Production, said, "We have chosen to partner with Keppel Shipyard for this fast-track upgrade project just as the market is showing a positive trend with an increasing number of both project awards and tenders. We very much look forward to working with Keppel on this project and are confident that they, once again, can provide a high-quality, safe and on-time delivery to Yinson."
