Modec has secured a contract from OSX 3 Leasing to supply the floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel OSX-3 FPSO to be used in the Campos Basin, offshore Brazil.

Under the EPCI contract, MODEC will be responsible for the engineering, procurement, construction, mobilisation, installation and commissioning of the FPSO, including topsides processing equipment, hull and marine systems, and the external turret mooring produced by Sofec.

The FPSO, which will have a storage capacity of 1.3 millions of barrels of oil, will be commissioned at a depth of 110m in block BM-C-39.

It will be capable of processing 100,000 barrels of oil per day from the Campos reservoir and will generate 60MW of power.

Delivery of the FPSO is scheduled for the third quarter of 2013, and first oil is expected in September 2013.
