Star Deep Water Petroleum Limited, an affiliate of Chevron Corporation has awarded Kongsberg Maritime a contract for performing a Cargo Off-loading Dynamic Simulation Study, for the Agbami Project in Nigeria.
Kongsberg Maritime will establish an offloading and export dynamic simulator model based upon the current marine and offloading system specification. The model will be used to evaluate the offloading and export system design and it will be configured by use of the Kongsberg Maritime dynamic process simulation tool, called ASSETT.
We are pleased by this order from Chevron and the Agbami project, since this project has been a focus area for Kongsberg Maritime for several years, comments Kurt Roger Sivertsen, Sales Manager for Process Simulation at Kongsberg Maritime.
Agbami Field, located in 1500 meters water depth, is about 112 km offshore Nigeria. It is spread across two blocks, OMLs 127 & 128. A 300 meter newly built FPSO vessel will be used to produce the field. The vessel will have processing capability for 250,000 b/d oil, 450 MMcf/d gas and storage of 2.15 million barrels. Topsides will weigh 38,000 tonnes. The field will be developed via 38 subsea production, gas injection and water injection wells.
