LONDON, Aug. 4 -- Tullow Ghana Ltd. has let a contract for subsea, well test, and data acquisition services to Expro International Group PLC for its deepwater Jubilee oil field off Ghana, which is due to start production next year (OGJ, July 27, 2009, p. 35).

Separately, MODEC Offshore Production Systems (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. let a contract to Jurong Shipyard Pte. Ltd. to convert a very large crude carrier (VLCC) into a floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel for Jubilee.

Expro International will deliver a subsea deepwater intervention completion landing string, using electrohydraulic technology, which will operate from a fifth-generation dynamic positioning rig.

Under a 30-month contract, it also will handle data acquisition and surface well-test clean-up work.

Jurong Shipyard, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine, will convert the Ohdoh (ex Tohdoh) VLCC into FPSO Kwame Nkrumah MV21 for installation in 1,100 m of water at Jubilee.

The FPSO will be able to process more than 120,000 b/d of oil, inject more than 230,000 b/d of water, handle 160 MMscfd of produced gas, and store 1.6 million bbl of oil.

The conversion includes detailed engineering, installation, and integration of 18 topside modules; installation of external turret and power generation; accommodation upgrading; and extensive piping and electrical cabling work.

Global LNG: Adjusting to New Realities

Fri, Mar 20, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s March 20, 2015, webcast will look at how global LNG trade will be affected over the next 12-24 months by falling crude oil prices and changing patterns and pressures of demand. Will US LNG production play a role in balancing markets? Or will it add to a growing global oversupply of LNG for markets remote from easier natural gas supply? Will new buyers with marginal credit, smaller requirements, or great need for flexibility begin to look attractive to suppliers? How will high-cost, mega-projects in Australia respond to new construction cost trends?

US Midstream at a Crossroads

Fri, Mar 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Mar. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on US midstream companies at an inflection point in their development in response to more than 6 years shale oil and gas production growth. Major infrastructure—gas plants, gathering systems, and takeaway pipelines—have been built. Major fractionation hubs have expanded. Given the radically changed pricing environment since mid-2014, where do processors go from here? What is the fate of large projects caught in mid-development? How to producers and processors cooperate to ensure a sustainable and profitable future? This event will serve to set the discussion table for the annual GPA Convention in San Antonio, Apr. 13-16, 2015.

This event is sponsored by Leidos Engineering.

The Future of US Refining

Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
