Landmark Moment for Energean Power Gas FPSO

A major milestone has been reached with the lifting of the flare on the FPSO (Floating Production, Storage and Offloading Unit) for Energean’s Karish gas project.

The installation of the 650-ton, 100-meter tall telescopic flare structure took place in two distinct operations at the Sembcorp Admiralty Yard in Singapore where the modules were built.
- First lifting occurred on January 14 for the fixed part of the flare (500 tons and 50 meters tall)
- Second lifting on February 24 was the most delicate with the successful insertion of the 155-ton, 55-meter mobile flare inside the fixed part previously installed.

Valerie Messager, Project Offshore Structure Engineer, said: “The flare lifting operation was a success thanks to several weeks of careful preparation we undertook and tight cooperation between the teams involved. The lifting team on the crane barge also did a very good job.”

The two-piece design is the first of its type in the world. Project being schedule-driven, the towing route from Singapore to Israel was decided via the Suez Canal, including a bridge with a 68m height clearance. A telescopic flare design in two parts, to be further deployed at offshore site in Israel, was the best solution for the FPSO to pass the bridge with minimal clearance.

Next important milestone is the flare deployment test to ensure the mobile part can be deployed smoothly using its pre-installed hydraulic strand jacks.

This kind of technical innovation shows Technip Energies’ capability to customize solutions for the benefit of our clients and reinforce our position to deliver gas FPSO.
