Energean Oil and Gas plc, the oil and gas producer focused on the Mediterranean, announced that its FPSO departed from the COSCO yard in China on 3 April 2020, according to a press release.

The hull will now be taken to the Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in Singapore, where maintenance will be carried out, before the completed FPSO is towed to the Karish field in Israel for installation and hook-up.

This development represents a key moment in the Karish project timetable. First gas on the Karish project is on track for H1 2021.
