FPSO Marine

Overview:

Introduction:

The use of Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) has significantly increased in recent decades. FPSOs have lower cost relative to traditional offshore oil platforms. The latest FPSOs are used for developing deepwater oil fields and reserves where it is either not possible or not practical to install a fixed platform. It is crucial to understand the environmental and design aspects affecting the operation to operate FPSOs successfully. Also, beneficial to know all essential elements of FPSOs.
