A joint venture between Drydocks World Dubai and Aker Solutions has signed its first contract, with Altera Infrastructure, to upgrade, refurbish and electrify the FPSO Petrojarl Knarrl for the Rosebank oil and gas field in the UK. The upgrades will allow it to be kept in the field for 25 years without drydocking.
Aker Solutions will handle the detailed design and procurement of equipment in Norway, while Drydocks World will be responsible for the fabrication and construction work at its yard in Dubai. The FPSO is expected to arrive in Dubai to start the upgrade works in late 2023 and will remain in the yard until completion in 2025.
