Wartsila to Power Australian FPSO

Wartsila won a contract to supply a 31.5 MW diesel power plant for a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Mutineer-Exeter field of Santos Ltd. off the north west coast of Australia. The plant has been ordered by MODEC Inc. of Tokyo.

MODEC is converting an existing Suezmax tanker, of about 150.000 dwt, into a turret-moored FPSO vessel for Santos Ltd. of Australia. It will be operated by MODEC on the Mutineer- Exeter field (WA-191-P), and will have a storage capacity for 930,000 barrels of crude oil and will be moored in 156 m water depth. The turret mooring will allow the vessel to be disconnected easily when a cyclone approaches so that it can temporarily leave the field. The vessel will be capable of processing 100,000 barrels of crude oil a day, and can treat 125.000 barrels a day of produced water. The first oil from the field is planned for mid 2005.
