AKPO FPSO PDF

ABSTRACT This paper addresses the main characteristics of the AKPO FPSO. Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is unique. Storage and Offloading unit (FPSO) of the AKPO field development, offshore Nigeria. The AKPO field is located on the Oil Mining License. (OML) offshore . The Akpo FPSO hull will have a storage capacity of two million barrels of oil and a large deck space to accommodate more than 17 topsides modules. Akpo’s.

The company performed a series of pre-commissioning services on the field’s flowlines and umbilicals. The main automation contractor for the FPSO is Emerson Process Management who provides digital automation architecture to digitally integrate the topside module control systems. Technip was the project manager and was also fpsso for the initial engineering phase. Sources [ edit ] http: The Akpo floating production storage and offloading vessel FPSO was commissioned in mid by Total Upstream Nigeria following the successful development of the Akpo oil and gas field, km south of Port Harcourt off the coast of Nigeria in West Africa.

Because of these particular characteristics, it was possible to start-up the AKPO field in a limited time frame ahead of schedule and without any major problems. This Rivers State location article is a stub. Some of the engineering tasks fabrication of components was carried out when the vessel reached Nigeria.

The topside fabrication and fitting out was completed in December and the vessel began operations at OMLapproximately km south of Port Harcourt,Nigeria in March This page was last edited on 6 Octoberat Pressure maintenance in the reservoirs is necessary, with water injection in 4 of the fpsso and gas injection in one.

HHI contracted Nexans to install 1,km of offshore cables for power and instrumentation infrastructure. The Akpo hull has a storage capacity for two million barrels of oil and the deck was designed to accommodate 17 topside modules, which includes two processing trains for the separation of oil and water.

The contract also includes EPC engineering, procurement, construction, installation and commissioning of the oil loading terminal, the FPSO mooring system and the gas export pipeline from the FPSO to the Amenam platform.

Peer reviewed only Published between: The six RB gensets are capable of providing the MW of electrical power needed to operate the subsea components of the field. This article about an oil field is a stub. These were installed to provide electrical power for the FPSO vessel.

The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is unique, in some particular technical details and principals which have been incorporated in the design, such as: Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes. HHI was responsible for the construction of the hull and also the construction and integration of the topside modules.

The consortium was responsible for engineering, supply, construction, offshore commissioning and dpso of the vessel.
