Fossil Energy – MODEC
MODEC announced today that the FPSO MIAMTE MV34 operating in the Offshore Area 1 block in the Bay of Campeche for Eni has achieved the first oil production on February 23, 2022.
Moored in a water depth of approximately 32 meters some ten kilometers off Mexico’s coast, the FPSO is capable of handling 90,000 barrels of oil per day, 75 million cubic feet of gas per day and 120,000 barrels of water injection per day with a storage capacity of 700,000 barrels of oil.
The FPSO boasts a Disconnectable Tower Yoke Mooring System, a first-of-its-kind design in the industry. The state-of-the-art DTYMS was developed to moor the FPSO in shallow water, whilst also allowing the unit to disconnect its mooring and depart the area in order to avoid winter storms and hurricanes prevalent in the Gulf of Mexico.
