LMC has completed the detailed development of a number of spread moored units including FPSOs, FSOs and barges. Involvement varies from full detailed design (including specification, design, procurement, and installation of key mooring components such as chain stoppers) to third party verification work.
FPSO BERANTAI – Malaysia
CARAUNA FSO – Brazil
LMC designed a spread mooring system for use by Santa Fe Snyder (now Devon Energy) to provide an FSO for production on the Carauna Field, offshore Brazil in very shallow water (15m). LMC was also contracted by the conversion yard FSL in Portsmouth UK to carry out detailed design of the conversion of the vessel to a FSO (Floating, Storage Offloading vessel).
SOUTH ANGSI, FSO – Malaysia
In 2005, LMC completed detailed design, equipment specification and installation engineering for a spread moored FSO, offshore Malaysia on behalf of MISC. This included vessel mounted chainstopper strengthening, loading balconies, loading hose analyses and specification of moorings, chainstoppers, hoses, winches and installation equipment.
