Flintstone Technology Ltd has secured a substantial contract with MODEC for its in-line tensioning and pull through connection mooring system to be deployed off West Africa.

The system will be used on Tullow Oil's Kwame Nkrumah MV21 floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel located on the Jubilee field off the coast of Ghana.

The mooring system will allow the conversion of the FPSO to a spread moored configuration.

Commenting on the contract, Flintstone Managing Director Andrew Clayson said: “We are very pleased to see our technology being used to provide a solution to what is a complex and challenging situation with the existing mooring arrangement. We look forward to working with MODEC and Tullow on the project.”

The Kwame Nkrumah MV21 is installed in approximately 1,100 meters water depth on the Jubilee Field, which is one of the largest oil fields discovered offshore West Africa in the past 10 years.

Earlier this month, Flintstone announced it was is diversifying its mooring operations to help drive down costs for the offshore floating wind industry. The company's solutions can match specific project requirements in both oil and gas and marine renewable energy.

With decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, this knowledge combined with the mooring solutions, is transferable and provides substantial benefits to offshore floating wind in lowering costs and increasing reliability.

As part of MacGregor and the Cargotec group, Flintstone brings substantial resources, knowledge and experience in many aspects of the offshore marine market including cranes, handling systems and personnel transfer.

Flintstone will be showcasing its technology on MacGregor's stand (Booth 4239) at OTC 2018.
