Keppel Shipyard Named SBM's Preferred Yard in FPSO conversions

Monday, July 01, 2002
Keppel Shipyard, the wholly owned subsidiary of Keppel Corporation Limited (KCL) through Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M), has been chosen as the preferred shipyard in the Far East for the conversion of Floating Production Storage and Offloading facilities (FPSOs) for Single Buoy Moorings Inc (SBM). This follows SBM’s satisfaction with Keppel’s performance and safety record in the two FPSO conversions for them in 2000. This was disclosed by Mr Choo Chiau Beng Executive Director of KCL and Chairman & CEO of Keppel O&M, at a ceremony to celebrate the successful completion of an FPSO for SBM, the owner and operator of the largest fleet of FPSO/FSOs. At the ceremony at Keppel Shipyard on June 28, 2002, the FPSO was named FPSO Falcon. It is built for SBM’s client, ExxonMobil, and will be deployed to the Yoho field off the coast of West Africa. Said Mr Didier Keller, CEO of SBM, “FPSO conversions are highly complex, and we are pleased to find in Keppel Shipyard a yard with a special attitude and expertise to work hand in glove with us to deliver high quality facilities on time every time. FPSO Falcon is a product of this close partnership.”
