Keppel renames converted FPSO

Keppel Shipyard is on course to deliver a converted FPSO on schedule.

Conversion work on the 255,350-dwt VLCC Bauhinia (ex- Island Bauhinia, built 1988) is coming to a close.

The Singapore shipbuilder clinched the contract from SBM Offshore in early 2010.

The vessel, renamed the Aseng in a ceremony on Saturday, is scheduled to be delivered to joint-partners SBM and Equatorial Guinea’s national oil company GEPetrol in the third quarter of this year.

The Aseng, which can produce 80,000 barrels of oil per day and store 1.7 million barrels of oil, is chartered to Noble Energy for the development of the Aseng field offshore Equatorial Guinea.

Since 2000, Keppel and SBM have completed 13 FPSO/FSO conversion projects together.
