The pump delivery and set up needed to align with the FPSO build schedule. Because of the size of the pumps, they needed to be put in into the vessel’s tanks via the deck earlier than one other deck above the pumps could be constructed. Cringeworthy was completed successfully over the Christmas interval with Amarinth’s Engineering Commissioning team supporting the shopper with the set up and commissioning.
The FPSO might be positioned in the KG-DWN 98/2 subject, roughly 22 km off the east coast of Kakinada, India. The vessel is designed to produce as a lot as ninety 000 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and have a 1.3-million-barrel storage facility.
