Yinson Production has appointed TMC Compressors (“TMC”) to supply a large marine compressed air system to its Agogo FPSO.
TMC will provide a large-capacity marine compressed air system including compressors for control and service air on board the Agogo FPSO.
“We are delighted to maintain our position as the global market leader for supply of marine compressed air systems to FPSOs. Yinson Production is an experienced FPSO operator that we are proud to have on our client list,” says Hans Petter Tanum, TMC’s director of sales and business development.
TMC will manufacture and assemble the equipment in Europe and deliver it to Yinson Production’s chosen conversion yard. TMC has not disclosed the value of the contract.
TMC’s marine compressed air system is designed specifically for offshore and marine use. The compressors have been developed to allow the vessel crew to conduct equipment maintenance themselves. They are renowned for operational reliability and low energy consumption.
“Flying technicians offshore is a costly exercise. Enabling the vessel crew to conduct maintenance therefore makes sense,” adds Tanum.
The Agogo FPSO will be operated in the West Hub field of Block 15/06 offshore Angola. The Block is operated by Azule Energy, Angola’s largest independent oil and gas producer, and a 50/50 joint venture between BP p.l.c. and Eni S.p.A.
TMC is a global supplier of compressed air systems for marine and offshore use. The company is headquartered in Oslo, Norway.
