Keppel Shipyard Limited (Keppel Shipyard) has secured a contract for the modification of the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel OSX-1, worth approximately S$50 million.

The FPSO OSX-1 is owned by OSX 1 Leasing B.V., a subsidiary of OSX Brasil S/A. Commencing in the third quarter of 2010, Keppel Shipyard’s scope of work includes procurement, detailed engineering and the modification of the topside process modules. Keppel Shipyard will work with BW Offshore, which will provide project management, engineering services and technical guidance services to OSX 1 Leasing B.V.

Scheduled to leave Keppel Shipyard in the second quarter of 2011, the vessel will be deployed in the Campos Basin, offshore Brazil on a 20-year lease to OGX Petróleo e Gás.

Nelson Yeo, Managing Director (Marine) of Keppel Offshore & Marine, said, “We are pleased to embark on this partnership with OSX. This contract is a result of the track record we have built up with our customers in the markets where we are present. Our ability to deliver to our customer’s satisfaction a complete range of solutions stands us in good stead to be the provider of choice for the offshore and marine industry. Having completed a significant number of projects successfully working in Brazil, we look forward to delivering another outstanding FPSO for the region.”
