Egina FPSO sets sail for Nigeria

LAGOS, November 1, 2017 – Samsung Heavy Industries’ portion of the Egina FPSO set sail for Nigeria on Tuesday. 


The 330-metre-long, 61-metre-wide and 34-metre-high FPSO was built at the Geoje shipyard in South Korea. Its voyage will take three months and the remaining topside module integration and commissioning is expected to be completed in H2 2018. The vessel will have storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels.

Samsung Heavy Industries is responsible for the design, procurement, construction, delivery and trial operations under a USD 3.5-billion contract awarded in 2012. Additionally, Samsung is working with Ladol to finalise the vessel’s integration at SHI-MCI Free Zone Enterprise, their joint venture yard. 

“SHI-MCI has constructed topside modules for Egina FPSO since June 2015. The modules are fabricated successfully under the same safety and quality standards applicable in the Geoje shipyard; the local content portion of the project is proceeding as scheduled,” the company said in a statement.
