Hydrocarbon exploration and production company Energean has revealed that its FPSO for the Karish project located offshore Israel has sailed away from Singapore.
As informed by Energean on Tuesday, the Energean Power FPSO sailed away from Singapore and the company remains on track to deliver the first gas from the Karish project in 3Q 2022. The FPSO was previously scheduled to sail away from the yard in 2021 but, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the project has experienced delays.
In early 2022, Energean expected the vessel to be ready for sail-away from Singapore by the end of the first quarter. From sail-away to first gas, Energean expects 4-5 months, including tow, hook-up and commissioning.
In March, Energean connected the Karish gas field to the Israel National Gas Line (INGL), saying it was an important milestone in facilitating the operational readiness of the Karish field development.
The connection between Energean’s land-based system at Dor Beach in Northern Israel and the INGL delivery system was completed by welding together two 30-inch diameter pipe sections. Gas from the Karish field will flow to the Energean Power FPSO located 90 km offshore where production output will be processed and separated.
