Husky & CNOOC gear up with Madura FPSO and FPU

Husky Energy from Canada and CNOOC from China own each of the Madura fields, BD, MDA & MBH, in the Madura Straight on East Java, Indonesia. The remaining 20% belongs to the local Samudra Energy.

The  Madura BD project is well in progress as decision was made last year to go for a

  • FPSO to process 110,00 mcf/d gas, 8,000 b/d condensates, 2,500 b/d water
  • Wellhead platform

The EPC contract to build this FPSO should be awarded in September to one of the following bidders:

Armada Gema Nusantara, the Indonesia branch of Bumi Armada
M3nergy in JV with the local Aquaria Shipping
Paleyaran Trans Parau Sorat in JV with Pelangi Niaga Mitra, BW Offshore and CETS Investment Management
Tanker Pacific Offshore Terminals with the local Samudera Petrindo
Sillo Maritime Perdana of Indonesia with Emas Offshore, Samsung C&T and Federal Offshore service.
The completion of the FPSO is then expected in December 2014.
 For the wellhead platform, the competition goes between:

Gunanusa with TL Offshore
Meindo Elang Indah with Swiber Offshore
Bakri Construction with Timas Suplindo
Pal Indonesia with Supasi Wydia Engineering and COOEC
– Nippon Steel
– Saipem
– Semec, the local branch of Punj Lloyd
Then regarding the MDA and MBH fields, Husky and CNOOC want to speed them up in order to catch up on the MD field development. 

CNOOC’s Offshore Oil Engineering Corporation who was in charge of the conceptual design came out with the construction of two wellhead platforms, one for each fiel, MDA and MBH, feeding a Floating Production Unit (FPU). 

Since September 2011, CNOOC’s Offshore Oil Engineering Corporation is working on the FEED phase of this FPU to have a capacity of 175,000 mcf/d gas where:

– 110,000 mcf/d will come from MDA
– 55,000 mcf/d from MBH

As the gas is supposed to contain low percentage of CO² and sulphur, the FPU will be mainly equipped with a dehydration unit and compression package to process and push the gas to East Java shore through existing network of pipelines.

According to the actual progress on the FEED and the green light expected from the Indonesian Authorities, Husky and CNOOC are planning to send the Invitations To Bid (ITB) in September for a fast track construction.
