Siemens will provide MODEC with three 34-megawatt (MW) SGT-A35 gas turbine power generation packages that will power MODEC’s floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. The vessel, referred to as the “Eni Mexico Area 1 FPSO,” will be deployed in the Offshore Area 1 approximately 6 mi (10 km) off the coast of Mexico at a water depth of approximately 105 ft (32 m). The field is owned by a consortium of two companies including Eni Mexico S. de R.L. de C.V. (Eni Mexico) as operator and Qatar Petroleum.
MODEC is responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilization, installation, and operation of the FPSO. Once operating in 2021, the FPSO is expected to process 90,000 bpd of crude oil and have a storage capacity of 900,000 bbl of crude oil.
