The scope of work

Eni has awarded a consortium led by Saipem the EPCI contract for a new built barge Floating Production Unit (FPU) for the Jangkrik Complex Project development.

The consortium is formed by Hyundai Heavy Industries Ltd (HHI) and the joint venture between Saipem, Tripatra Engineers & Constructors and Chiyoda.


The new build spread-moored FPU will have a treating capacity of 450MMSCFD of gas plus condensates and the scope of work includes engineering, procurement, fabrication of the FPU and the installation of a mooring system as well as hook-up, commissioning and assistance to the start-up.


The Jangkrik FPU project will be carried out from the Saipem Execution Centre in Jakarta. The topsides fabrication activities will be carried out in Saipem’s Karimun Island Yard, also located in Indonesia, while the hull will be fabricated in HHI’s offshore yard in Ulsan in South Korea. The FPU will be delivered at site ready for surf hook-up in 34 months.



This contract is in line with Saipem’s strategy of growth in particular in the Floaters construction in specific geographic areas, such as Asia Pacific and Africa, where the company can leverage on its local well established and unique availability of fabrication yards. Asia Pacific represents an important and strategic area of development for Saipem: the company is currently involved in technically complex projects in the area related to various FLNG initiatives.
