I understand that oil produced by FPSOs is usually offloaded to shuttle tankers. Do these shuttle tankers usually carry the oil the the nearest shore for further processing or can they export oil to countries further away?
In other words, shoul...
For example, can an External Turret moored FPSO rated for 100 meter water depth be upgraded for 400 meter water depth? Briefly what all modifications (e.g. structural, risers, turret etc) the FPSO will have to undergo?
Is conversion of spread moored FPSO to turret (internal/ external) moored FPSO possible at reasonable costs? Also, as a thumb rule (if any) to what extent the storage and processing capacities of an FPSO can be increased beyond its existing capacities?
What would someone recommend if the FPSO cannot be disconnected from the Production Platform during emergency? No means of quick disconnect between the two facilities?
Are there any West Africa regulatory requirements at all that mandate the use of a CALM offloading system for a spread-moored FPSO?
I'm with an engineering contractor studying FEED for a FPSO and the requirement is for us to maintain quality control (QC) inspection at the warehouse facilities in the country of the oil field such that all goods, equipment and materials and associated d...
Are there any recommendations for selecting the right type of riser for either spread or turret moored FPSO?
Lesson Learned: FPSO storage capacity versus Shuttle Tanker size
How big of an impact if the FPSO accommodation has insufficient beds (i.e less than 100 beds)?
FPSOs with steel pipework are frequently suffering blocked nozzles due to corrosion. I would like to investigate alternative piping mateials to full deluge testing as this contributes to corrosion of topsides pipework and damages electrical equipment.
What are the purposes of monitoring the FPSO Hull?
The attached may give some ideas to the motions to new folks entering the offshore industry. Hope it helps.
Can someone provide a list of offshore effluent sources?
Should Fire Water Pumps be sized to provide water to the single largest credible fire scenario (both for cooling, e.g. deluge and for fire-fighting, foam generation) including escape routes.
The followings are being considered:
What are the typical Emergency Expenditures associated with a leased FPSO?
What are the Cost Reimbursable Benefits of Operations & Maintenance contract of a leased FPSO?
If I am currently in the FEED Stage of an FPSO, is it feasible to ask the FPSO Contractor reserve/guarantee an installation vessel for the FPSO topsides?)
Should the temporary support mechanism for the module structure stool design be provided to enable the replacement of elastomeric bearings when needed on FPSO?
I have seen Electrical Equipment designs that have many voltage levels requirements as:
