Addax Petroleum's subsidiary Addax Petroleum Development (Nigeria) Ltd. held a Sail Away Ceremony for the Knock Adoon FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel) at the Dubai Drydocks Shipyard.

The Knock Adoon FPSO will replace the current Knock Taggart FPSO as Addax Petroleum’s new key crude oil production, storage and export facility in its fields in OML123, offshore Nigeria. Designed to store a minimum of 1,700,000 barrels of crude oil, the Knock Adoon FPSO also offers a processing capacity of 60 mbbls/d (sixty thousand barrels per day) of crude oil and a total liquids (oil and water) processing capacity of 140 mbbls/d. Incorporated in this facilities upgrade and expansion is an off-loading buoy terminal to more efficient crude offloading and to accommodate larger tankers.

The contract for the provision of the FPSO was awarded to Fred Olsen Production AS. Upgrade works were carried out in the Dubai Drydocks Shipyard in preparation for vessel mobilisation to Nigeria. The vessel is expected to depart from Dubai in May. Addax Petroleum has the vessel under contract for an initial eight year period with options to extend.

The Knock Adoon FPSO is the third FPSO contracted by Addax Petroleum in Nigeria after the Knock Taggart FPSO, chartered from Fred Olsen Production, in OML123 and the Sendje Berge FPSO, chartered in 2005 from Sendje Berge Ltd in OPL90.
