Cameron FPSO process equipment for SBM Offshore

SBM Offshore selected gas processing packages from Cameron for its FPSOs destined for Lula field pre-salt area offshore Brazil.

The FPSOs, the Cidade de Maricá and Cidade de Saquarema, are being built by SBM and will be replicas of the Cidade de Ilhabela FPSO project currently underway in Brazil where Cameron is providing gas dehydration and CO2 removal packages to SBM.

The Cameron packages for the new contract will be primarily used for gas dehydration and acid gas removal before routing the gas to reinjection compressors. These packages will process about 5.7M cubic metres of natural gas per day.

Cameron´s gas dehydration packages are molecular sieve-based units that dehydrate natural gas streams to extremely low levels, and can process gas to much lower dew points than glycol dehydration systems. They are designed to be effective over a wide range of operating conditions and are fully automated for ease of operation and maintenance.

“The new award represents SBM´s continued confidence with Cameron when meeting the challenges of local content, supply chain and schedule in executing projects in Brazil”, said Owen Serjeant, president of Cameron’s Process and Compression Systems business segment.

Cameron’s process systems execution centre in Rio de Janeiro will manage the projects.
