FPSO Market - Overview
A floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit is a floating facility based on an oil tanker hull. It is equipped with a hydrocarbon processing unit for the treatment and separation of water, gases, and crude oil, arriving on board from sub-sea oil wells via flexible pipelines. Processed oil is then transferred to cargo tanks in the FPSO ship’s hull. Processed gas is used as fuel for on-board power generation, and surplus gas is either exported via a pipeline to onshore areas or re-injected back into the subsea reservoirs. FPSOs enable the production of oil in deeper water and remote areas with economically viable technology such as fixed piled structures. Moreover, they have the capacity to store processed crude oil and are also equipped with an offloading system to transfer the crude oil to tankers for shipment to refineries.
