This LOA is for a three-year charter with extension options of up to three years will require Lewek Arunothai to be redeployed as part of a fast-track gas production project in the North Malay Basin, Malaysia. The FPSO will be used to support early production activities and is targeted to be on station from mid-2013.

The Lewek Arunothai is expected to undergo refurbishment works in Singapore to further enhance the vessel’s operational capabilities. Part of the upgrade includes the addition of an external turret mooring system which is being designed and fabricated in part by London Marine Consultants (‘LMC’) and fabricated by the TRIYARDS Group, both affiliate companies.
