Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 7/16/2011, Location: Africa

Keppel Shipyard Ltd's (Keppel Shipyard) conversion of the FPSO Aseng is on track to complete. The FPSO will be operated by Aseng Production Company Ltd, a joint venture by SBM Offshore and Compania Nacional de Petroleo de Guinea Ecuatorial (GEPetrol), the national oil company of Equatorial Guinea. Chartered by Noble Energy for the development of the Aseng field in offshore Equatorial Guinea, FPSO Aseng is capable of processing 80,000 barrels of oil per day and storing approximately 1.7 million barrels of oil.

HE Marcelino Owono Edu, Minister of Mines, Industry and Energy of Equatorial Guinea, witnessed the naming of the FPSO by his daughter, Senorita Dona Ayingono Owono Nchama, at Keppel Shipyard.

Mr Tony Mace, Managing Director and CEO of SBM Offshore, commented, "We are honoured to be able to contribute to the growth of Equatorial Guinea's oil and gas industry. Through the strong teamwork between SBM and Keppel Shipyard, we add yet another quality vessel to our fleet of FPSOs."

Mr Tong Chong Heong, CEO of Keppel Offshore & Marine added, "Keppel is committed to provide value-added solutions and reliable services to our customers. With safety as our top priority, we have exercised a focused approach to ensure that the needs and expectations of FPSO Aseng's stakeholders are met. Working closely with our partners on this project, we are taking strides towards a quality delivery." Keppel's work scope on FPSO Aseng includes refurbishment and life extension works, upgrading the accommodation facilities, installing and integrating the topsides as well as fabricating and integrating the internal turret.

Since 2000, Keppel and SBM have completed 13 FPSO/FSO conversion projects together. FPSO Aseng is the second FPSO project, which Keppel Shipyard and SBM are delivering for Equatorial Guinea.
