GORINCHEM, the Netherlands – The Petrojarl I LLC consortium has commissioned Damen Shiprepair Rotterdam (DSR) to upgrade the FPSO Petrojarl I.
Queiroz Galvão Exploração e Produção (QGEP) has contracted the floater to serve as an early production system on the field in a water depth of 1,535m (5,036 ft).
DSR’s upgrade scope covers basic engineering, detailed and construction design and engineering, workshop drawings, interface engineering, marine and process equipment procurement, fabrication, construction, corrosion protection/coating, transport and lifting operations, integration, mechanical completion, performance testing, and commissioning activities.
Additionally, the company will perform upgrades and modifications related to the marine, hull, and life extension classification program; conversion of the process systems (separation train and produced water topsides) and integration; and Brazilian compliance procedures.
Under a partnership with DSR, Frames in Alphen aan den Rijn, the Netherlands will handle design and fabrication of the new topsides skids, while Alblasserdam-based Nevesbu is responsible for marine and topside integration engineering.
Petrojarl I is expected to arrive at the shipyard next month and remain there for around one year.
