Brazilian operator Enauta recently concluded the purchase of an FPSO for its Atlanta Field in the Santos Basin. This will operate in water depths of 1,500 m and is being adapted by Yinson Production from the existing FPSO OSX-2 under an EPCI contract.
Dubai Drydocks World will perform structural upgrades, refurbishment and equipment enhancements, allowing the new FPSO to start operating in 2024 with a production capacity of 50,000 bbl/d.
The two API 610 OH2 crude transfer duplex pumps with Plan 53B seal support systems will have 570-mm diameter impellers and variable frequency drives.
All electrical items will be IECEx certified for operating in ATEX Zone 1, and the pumps will be ABS-witnessed and certified due to the FPSO being operated under ABS Class.
