FPSO'S TODAY: WHAT IS THE OPTIMUM CONCEPT?
This paper describes the main design parameters of current Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) projects, and evaluates the significance of their influence on the overall design. Several guidelines and insights are provided to help in selecting and combining together technical options available for specific field development cases. The detailed engineering, execution and operational experience gained on recent projects and actual realisations are largely called upon so that pragmatic considerations and recommendations can be suggested for achieving optimized FPSO configurations in a wide range of applications.
