MISC Berhad is building the FPSO to expand its fleet of 14 floating production systems. The FPSO is
expected to have a processing capacity of 180,000 barrels of oil and 12 million cubic meters of gas
“The order demonstrates our strengths and capabilities to transform FPSO operations to be more
sustainable while fulfilling production requirements,” said Thorbjoern Fors, Executive Vice President
for Siemens Energy Industrial Applications.
The topside modules will be designed and manufactured across Asia, with main engineering and
execution activities done through Singapore. Packaging for all the rotating equipment packages will
occur at Siemens Energy’s Santa Barbara d’Oeste facility in Brazil. The facility is also fully equipped
to provide support and service to the FPSO’s modules once it is deployed.
Siemens Energy’s scope of supply includes the EPC work for all eight modules and several key
components: two electric, low-pressure centrifugal compressors; two electric, CO2 compressors;
three main injection compressors driven by Siemens Energy SGT-A35-GT62X gas turbines; four Siemens Energy SGT-A35-GT30 gas turbines for power generation; an E-house; plus all electricals
including an electrical control and management system (ECMS).
The ECMS is being designed to provide monitoring and supervision for the power generation and
distribution network for load management of the FPSO facility, including topside and marine. MISC
Berhad and the FPSO operator can use the ECMS to monitor FPSO power, generate reports, and plan
for future sustainability.
“Our mission is to help our partners in their energy transition by providing the equipment,
infrastructure, and support to create thoughtful and sustainable change without compromising
their ability to meet the world’s growing energy needs,” said Arja Talakar, Senior Vice President,
Industrial Applications Products for Siemens Energy.
