Energean plc, the gas producer focused on the Mediterranean, announced that the first topsides module lift on to the Energean Power FPSO hull has been safely and successfully completed at Sembcorp Marine’s Admiralty Yard, Singapore.

The electrical house (E-house), which contains all the FPSO control equipment and electrical switchgear, was lifted onto the Energean Power hull on the 24th August. The E-house, weighing in at 850 tonnes, was lifted using the L-801 Barge pontoon crane, with lift preparation commencing early morning and successful touchdown on the hull in the early afternoon.

Sembcorp Marine has been subcontracted by EPC contractor TechnipFMC, while lifting operation has been executed by Jurong Marine Services PTE.

The “Energean Power” FPSO will be used to develop all of the Company’s Israeli fields. It will be installed 90 km offshore and be the first FPSO ever to operate in the Eastern Mediterranean. The FPSO will have a gas treatment capacity of 800 MMscf/day and liquids storage capacity of 800,000 bbls.

Installation of the Energean Power FPSO mooring lines is now in progress and the project remains on track to deliver first gas in 2H 2021.
