Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha Ltd has concluded agreements with Yinson Acacia Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Yinson Holdings Berhad, a Malaysian energy services provider and Sumitomo Corporation, to participate in the floating production, storage and offloading owning and chartering business for the Marlim II Project, offshore Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. The Marlim field is operated by Brazilian national oil company, Petróleo Brasileiro SA. Upon stable operations of the FPSO being achieved in 2023, K Line will have around a 10% stake in the FPSO venture.

The FPSO is planned to serve the Marlim oil and gas field revitalization project, which is operated by Petrobras and situated 150 kilometers off the Brazilian coast in the Campos Basin. Both entities which have entered into the time charter agreement and service agreement with Petrobras for the owning/chartering and operation/maintenance of the FPSO are currently co-owned by Yinson and Sumitomo. Operations are expected to commence by first quarter of 2023, with a 25-year charter period thereafter, with no options for extension.

This project represents K Line’s second FPSO business following the offshore Ghana oil and gas field development project based on the partnership with Yinson and Sumitomo, in which the company participated in 2018, and “K” Line will efficiently accumulate the knowledge and expertise of operation and maintenance of FPSO by dispatching its technical personnel to Yinson’s project team in Singapore from this year onwards. K Line intends to expand FPSO business with Yinson and Sumitomo as a core business which generates long term and stable profits, and utilize the accumulated know-how in the succeeding FPSO projects and new energy related businesses.
