Energean receives Class approval for FPSO design for Karish-Tanin

This rapid obtainment of Class approval reflects the maturity of the FPSO design at Final Investment Decision ("FID") and keeps the development on track to cut first steel as planned before the end of 2018.

Early Class approval was viewed as a critical milestone and its achievement, on schedule, validates the adopted strategy of building upon an existing hull design from TechnipFMC subsidiary, Inocean.
