Flintstone Secures Contract for Tullow FPSO
Flintstone Technology Ltd said it has secured a contract with MODEC for its in-line tensioning and pull through connection mooring system to be deployed off West Africa.
The system will be used on Tullow Oil’s Kwame Nkrumah MV21 floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel located on the Jubilee field off the coast of Ghana.
The mooring system will allow the conversion of the FPSO to a spread moored configuration.
The Kwame Nkrumah MV21 is installed in approximately 1,100 meters water depth on the Jubilee Field, which is one of the largest oil fields discovered offshore West Africa in the past 10 years.
Earlier this month, Flintstone, part of MacGregor and the Cargotec group, announced it was is diversifying its mooring operations to help drive down costs for the offshore floating wind industry. The company’s solutions can match specific project requirements in both oil and gas and marine renewable energy.
