Chinese shipyard COSCO Dalian has completed its part of the conversion of the VLCC Radiant Jewel into what will be FPSO Cidade de Sao Paulo MV23, to be deployed in the pre-salt region of Brazil's Santos Basin.
The FPSO will be capable of processing 120,000 barrels of oil or 150,000 barrels of total fluids per day.
MODEC is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilization, and operation of the FPSO, including topsides processing equipment as well as hull and marine systems. SOFEC will design and provide the spread mooring.
COSCO Dalian's work on the conversion involved steel fabrication, module installation and integration and the installation of cables, pipe and equipment.
The topsides modules will be lifted and integrated on the FPSO in Brazil.
