Keppel secures production barge upgrade contract from KrisEnergy for S$30 million
Keppel Offshore and Marine, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel Shipyard, has secured a contract worth about S$30 million (US$21.7 million) for the modification and upgrading of a production barge for SJ Production Barge, a wholly-owned subsidiary of KrisEnergy.
Keppel Shipyard’s scope of work on the production barge for KrisEnergy includes installation of a power generation module, electrical house, new accommodation units, and other refurbishment works.
When completed in or around the third quarter of 2019, the production barge will be capable of processing up to 30,000 barrels of fluid per day, and equipped with gas, oil, and water separation facilities.
It will be deployed in the Apsara oil field, which lies in Block A of the Khmer Basin in the Gulf of Thailand. The field is Cambodia’s first hydrocarbon development.
