LONDONGE Oil & Gas has signed an agreement with MODEC covering the supply and service of gas turbines for FPSOs in Brazil.

MODEC ordered GE gas turbines for eight FPSOs based in Brazil and signed a 25-year maintenance contract for gas turbines on six FPSOs.

The agreement includes provision of data analytics for advanced monitoring and diagnostics, helping to improve equipment availability and operational efficiency.

It is one of GE’s largest ever service agreement for FPSOs.

The FPSOs are owned by consortiums headed by MODEC, which also provides operation and maintenance services for the vessels.

GE’s base in Petropolis can undertake repair work onshore where necessary to reduce turnaround time.

There is a growing trend, the company adds, for long-term contractual service agreements for FPSOs as opposed to managing maintenance on a single event basis. Use of digital solutions, the company claims, will allow MODEC to maximize operation efficiency and production output as well as reducing manpower requirements offshore.
