US contractor McDermott International has shipped the second batch of modules it is fabricating for Modec’s floating production, storage and offloading vessel destined for the Eni-operated Amoca field off Mexico.

McDermott on Thursday announced the latest delivery from its Altamira fabrication facility in Mexico – the topsides modules are being shipped to Dyna-Mac for integration at its yard in Singapore.

Japanese floater specialist Modec tasked McDermott with fabricating five topsides modules for this floater, to be delivered in two shipments.

This second shipment includes modules that will provide inlet separators, oil separation, a flare knockout drum and sand clean-up materials for the FPSO.

The US contractor last month shipped the first tranche of its topsides modules for the Amoca FPSO.

These structures were also delivered to Dyna-Mac for integration work.

The FPSO will be located on Area 1 in Campeche Bay, about six miles off the coast of Mexico in a water depth of 32 metres.

Eni has a 15-year charter deal with Modec for the FPSO — a contract that comes with five one-year options — that is intended to start in early 2021.

The vessel is designed to handle 90,000 barrels per day of oil and 75 million cubic feet per day of gas and it will have storage capacity of 900,000 barrels of crude.
