Keppel Secures $200 Million in Contracts

Press Release
Tuesday, February 26, 2013

Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd's (Keppel O&M) subsidiaries - Keppel FELS Brasil S.A. (Keppel FELS Brasil) and Keppel Shipyard Ltd (Keppel Shipyard) - have secured two contracts worth S$200 million from repeat customers.

Keppel FELS Brasil's contract is with MODEC and Toyo Offshore Production Systems Pte Ltd (MTOPS), a joint-venture company between MODEC, Inc. and Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO), to integrate the topside modules of a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit. This project will be carried out at BrasFELS, Keppel FELS Brasil's yard in Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

In Singapore, Keppel Shipyard has been engaged by SBM Offshore N.V. (SBM Offshore) to fabricate an internal turret for a newbuild FPSO, which will be installed in the Ichthys Field, in the Browse Basin, offshore of Western Australia.

Tonng Chong Heong, Chief Executive Officer of Keppel O&M, shared, "We are pleased to be selected by our customers for repeat projects as these are strong affirmations of the quality of our services. BrasFELS and MTOPS' first FPSO project was delivered safely and 19 days ahead of schedule; the second project is underway and on track for delivery in 2Q 2014. Keppel Shipyard has collaborated with SBM Offshore on some 17 major conversion and fabrication projects.

"With good rapport and understanding between our yards and their customers, we are confident that both the MODEC FPSO and Ichthys FPSO internal turret projects will be completed to high satisfaction."

The FPSO, a project by MODEC and its partner Schahin Group, has been chartered for operations offshore Brazil for 20 years. Integration works for the FPSO will take place from 3Q 2014 to 3Q 2015. The completed unit will have a production capacity of 150,000 barrels of oil per day and storage capacity of 1,600,000 barrels of oil. Meanwhile, Keppel Shipyard's work on the 6,800-tonne Ichthys FPSO turret is scheduled to complete by Q3 2014.

The Ichthys FPSO turret forms a part of the Ichthys LNG Project, which is a joint venture between the field operator INPEX group companies, TOTAL group companies and other participants. The Ichthys LNG Project is expected to produce 8.4 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and 1.6 million tonnes of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) per annum, along with approximately 100,000 barrels of condensate per day at peak. Gas from the Ichthys Field will undergo preliminary processing offshore to remove water and raw liquids, including condensate, before being exported to onshore processing facilities in Darwin via an 889km pipeline.

Keppel Shipyard's ongoing projects for SBM Offshore are the conversion of FPSO OSX-2 for Brazil as well as modification and upgrading of FPSO N'Goma for Angola. SBM Offshore is also working with Keppel Singmarine Pte Ltd on the newbuilding of a multi-purpose dive support construction vessel.

The above contracts are not expected to have any material impact on the net tangible assets and earnings per share of Keppel Corporation Limited for the current financial year.
