Industrial services specialist WSG Energy Services (WSGES) of Singapore has secured multiple contracts for floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel projects with a combined value in excess of $10-million.

WSGES has been commissioned by energy infrastructure company Yinson Production to assist on the upgrade and conversion of FPSO Atlanta; on floater specialist BW Offshore’s construction of the FPSO Barossa; and recently completed a work scope on oil and gas services company SBM Offshore’s Prosperity FPSO.
WSGES has also recently been awarded a contract to provide precommissioning services for the FPSO Maria Quiteria (IPB Project) by Yinson Production. The IPB Project is currently being constructed in southern China – and is WSGES’s first precommissioning campaign in China.

“The FPSO market is one of our main focal points in Asia-Pacific and securing these four strategic contracts, along with a number of smaller workscopes, sets out our credentials for providing reliable, efficient and solution-driven services to FPSO construction companies and those involved in vessel conversion work,” says WSGES Asia GM Darren Seet.

The contract successes underline WSGES’s growing reputation in the FPSO sector in Asia-Pacific and follow a recent strengthening of its Singapore-based management team with the appointment of a raft of seasoned oil and gas specialists.

Working closely with its United Arab Emirates (UAE) and European bases, WSGES is providing precommissioning services which includes N2/Helium leak testing and pressure safety valve recalibration on Yinson’s FPSO Atlanta conversion in Dubai’s Drydocks World – a joint venture with UAE-based Marjan Group.

A major flange management and leak testing work scope, which includes the use of WSGES’s propriety Asset Integrity Management System (AIMS), is under way on BW Offshore’s new build of the Barossa FPSO on behalf of Australia’s oil and gas exploration company Santos.
“Our AIMS software for managing large-scale integrity projects is an attractive proposition for prospective clients and can be tailored to their specific needs and scaled up depending on the size of the project,” says Seet.

WSGES has deployed teams to Vietnam, Korea and Indonesia and is working locally in Singapore where various Barossa modules are under construction, and this contract follows the completion of another project involving the supply of a commissioning lead and shutdown manager for the same client on the Espoir FPSO.

A leak repair project on behalf of SBM Offshore was recently completed at the Keppel Shipyard in Singapore, on the Prosperity FPSO, which later this year is scheduled to be installed on the Payara Field, offshore Guyana.

“We are active on a number of significant tenders which if successful will be game changers for the WSGES service offering in Asia Pacific,” he adds.

The company has also formed a new entity in Korea and will begin recruiting staff, while longer-term plans include extending its operational capacity in China, Vietnam and Malaysia.

WSGES is the largest independent provider of process, pipeline and industrial services to the UK and European refinery and liquefied natural gas terminal sectors and the 1 000- strong business also provides commissioning, valve services, specialist non-destructive testing and inspection services.
