Keppel FELS Brasil has secured a US$200 million (SG$253 million) contract from returning customer MODEC and Toyo Offshore Production Systems (MTOPS), a Singapore-based joint venture by Toyo Engineering Corporation and MODEC.
The Brazil-based BrasFELS yard will be in charge of the fabrication and integration of topside modules for the Floating Production Storage and Off-loading vessel (FPSO), and will be completed in two years.
The FPSO will comprise a daily production capacity of 150,000 barrels of oil per day and storage of 1,600,000 barrels of oil. Dutch-owned Tupi BV will charter the rig for 20 years and deploy in offshore Brazil.
Keppel has also won a fabrication yard contract in its Manila-based Keppel Subic Shipyard for the third phase of the Malampaya deepwater gas-to-power project.
Under the contract, the yard will fabricate, install and integrate the substructure and top side modules of the depletion compression platform, according to the Manila Standard Today.
