Sembcorp Marine’s Brazilian shipyard completes Petrobras P-68 FPSO

Sembcorp Marine’s wholly-owned and operated subsidiary Estaleiro Jurong Aracruz (EJA) has completed its first floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel project.

P-68 has left the EJA shipyard and will be deployed to the ultra-deepwater Berbigão and Sururu fields in Brazil’s Santos Basin.

The vessel is constructed for Tupi, a consortium comprising Petrobras Netherlands, Total Brazil Services, BG Gas Netherlands Holdings, and Galp Sinopec Brazil Services.

Measuring 316 by 54 metres, P-68 will produce up to 150,000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD). It has a 1.6-million-barrel storage capacity and can accommodate 154 persons.

EJA’s P-68 work scope includes fabricating six modules, pipe-racks, and a flare, and integrating them on the vessel along with other free issue items. It also executed carry-over works on the FPSO’s hull, which was built by another shipyard.

Following P-68, EJA will complete the P-71 FPSO modules fabrication and integration project for Tupi.
