For this Bongkot field development phase 4A, PTTEP has awarded PT Gunanusa Utama Fabricator as the EPCI contractor for the supply of Quarter Platform South (QPS) and the Flare Tower (FPS). QPS comprises a four legged jacket and a living quarter module with 160 beds, including all the necessary utilities for normal operation and emergency services.
These both QPS & FPS offshore facilities will be certified under Germanischer Lloyd Industrial Services (GLIS) certification scheme, where the certification scheme covering design engineering review, certification for the materials and equipment at the vendor mills, fabrication/construction/load out certification and offshore installation certification.
