Global E&C readies Hummingbird FPSO for low-carbon power

The Hummingbird floating production, storage and offtake (FPSO) vessel, now berthed in the Port of Nigg, will be modified to facilitate electrification from an external, low-carbon power source, said Aberdeen-based Global E&C late July.

This will help meet the requirements of the North Sea Transition Deal to decarbonise oil and gas production, it said. The company conducted a preliminary front-end engineering and design (pre-Feed) for the FPSO earlier in 2022.

Global E&C’s director of projects Derek Thomson said the company was “delighted” to be supporting producer Ping, which will use the FPSO (pictured below, courtesy Global E&C) to develop the Avalon field in the central North Sea. 

Ping also signed an agreement early August with Caerulean Winds for an offshore wind-generated power supply for the project.

Global E&C said its experience in the engineering, procurement and construction arena and its unique offering to support the oil and gas industry in energy transition put it in a strong position to execute the project.
