Malayan Yinson feeds on FPSOs from Angola and Suriname
Malaysian company Yinson has confirmed that it is carrying out preliminary engineering and design work with its partner Technip Energies on two floating deep water production, storage and offloading projects in Angola and Suriname operated by TotalEnergies.
The Angola project is in block 20/21 and the development of Suriname is in block 58.
The design of the topsides will be carried out by Technip Energies, which Yinson says is its partner in the pre-FEED work.
The pre-FEED study will provide TotalEnergies – which recently changed its name from Total – with technical and commercial rental and operating proposals, including solutions to reduce emissions, within 32 weeks from the date of the agreement.
Yinson’s Oslo office will carry out the pre-FEED work for a price agreed to by both parties, the Malaysian company said.
Flemming Gronnegaard, managing director of offshore production at Yinson, said the pre-FEED awards were Yinson’s first plans with the French supermajor.
“Pre-FEED is expected to create greater value for projects by focusing on optimizing the design and execution strategy,” said Gronnegaard.
“We are indeed delighted with this opportunity to demonstrate our solid technical and operational capacities to Total.[Energies], one of the world’s main energy players.
“We are currently building an FPSO for the Campos Basin in South America and have been operating in the African region since 1995.”
The Angola project is located at water depths of 1400 meters, 160 kilometers from Luanda, while the Suriname project is located in waters 2000 meters, 150 kilometers from Paramaribo.
Upstream reported on May 26, 2021 that Yinson and Technip Energies were competing pre-FEED for the FPSO Suriname.
