Dutch floater specialist SBM Offshore has awarded TMC Compressors of the Seas (TMC) a contract to supply the marine compressed air system for the FPSO destined for the Liza project.
Under the contract, TMC will provide a large compressed air system consisting of 3 x 400 kW frequency-controlled instrument air compressors, 2 x 86 kW feed air compressors, with associated air dryers and filters. TMC will supply the equipment to SBM Offshore during the second quarter of 2018. TMC’s contract value is undisclosed.
“This will be a big FPSO, with a maximum storage capacity said to be 1.6 million barrels of crude oil, so it requires some major compressor power, which we are extremely happy to deliver,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.
SBM Offshore will construct, install, lease and operate the floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).The FPSO will be deployed to the Liza field, circa 200km offshore Guyana.
“Only compressors that are specially designed and built for marine applications can deliver the required reliability, which is why I believe TMC has been selected for this particular delivery,” says Hans Petter Tanum.
TMC is the world’s leading supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use. The company is a thoroughbred supplier of marine compressors, based on 40 years’ heritage in the marine and offshore industries. The company is headquartered in Oslo, with sales and service offices all over the world.
