World's largest FPSO completed

The world's largest FPSO has left Korea for Angola on March 30. With a displacement of 400,000 tons, it will arrive at the Girassol site in early July. Construction of the FPSO has been carried out by the Mar Profundo Girassol (MPG) 50/50 joint venture between Bouygues Offshore and Stolt Offshore. The joint venture completed construction of the topsides within 21 months.

The Girassol FPSO will be moored in a water depth of 1,400 metres and first oil is due to flow towards the end of 2001. The 50,000t hull supports 24,000t of topsides. The FPSO has oil production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day and a 2,000,000 barrel storage capacity. It also features the largest desulphatation unit in the world, allowing treatment of 400,000 barrels of seawater per day for water injection.
