GIRASSOL FPSO Project / TotalFinaElf, Angola. The Girassol FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit) contract for the topsides includes a DCS . While the history of floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) is paved with record cost overruns and delays, through the description of the Girassol. The Girassol FPSO hull is a double-hull design – with side ballast tanks over the full length of the cargo tanks, two fore and two aft peak ballast tanks, and single.

Contact a Yokogawa Expert to learn how we can help you solve your challenges. Yokogawa is very pleased to have been able to take part in this major project, which requires not only long-term support and integration but also co-ordination and close partnership with the key players. Support and safety systems are designed for people including visitors.

Girassol FPSO – A Barrel Full

Since the technology used in fpeo process is new, and as wells start production one by one, the tools have to be very flexible so that modifications can be carried out online and single modifications downloaded without stopping production. Name of the ship. Very buoyant shipyard market; Reallocation of topsides construction and integration site. Co-ordination, team spirit and parallel engineering were the keys to successful completion of the assignment.

Topsides General lay out The general layout of the topsides is governed by safety considerations with the most hazardous equipment being arranged away from the accommodation area Figures A-2 and A The first phase of the project involved defining the guidelines which would provide the basis for the application configuration while the detailed engineering was in progress.

These tools also helped during pre-commissioning at the yard, towing some of our engineers had a free cruise on board the FPSO to finalise some modifications! Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U.

Further developments are being assessed, and would consist of additional risers and associated utilities on the FPSO. Log in to your subscription Username.

Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Yokogawa was able to achieve this using its standard tools.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Advanced search Show search help. The FPSO described here is now the only visible facility of this pioneering project for the offshore industry Figure A The general layout of the topsides is governed by safety considerations with the most hazardous equipment being. Introduction Discovered in Aprilthe Girassol field development was sanctioned two years later in July based on a subsea production scenario associated with a large FPSO, having the following main characteristics: About us Contact us Help Terms of use.

Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.

The living quarters provide accommodation for persons into eight executive cabins, twelve single bed cabins. The completion, just 33 months after the award of a contract based on functional specifications, constituted a new benchmark for future FPSO’s.

Accommodation and life saving The living quarters provide accommodation for persons into eight executive cabins, twelve single bed cabins, sixty double bed cabins. Once this phase had been completed and validated by all the partners, the application configuration was performed using user friendly tools which secured the application and facilitated the tests.

The hull construction subcontract was performed in tpso months and the construction of the 25,tonnes topsides subcontract was done in 21 months. The FPSO is equipped with: Sailaway of the FPSO from the construction yard in South Korea occurred at the end of March at a level of completion and commissioning never achieved before for a production unit of such complexity.

The ability to perform modifications on-line is an essential factor in ensuring uninterrupted production. Accommodation and life saving. The control and monitoring include not only the topsides modules but also the subsea equipment and the vessel packages.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Parallel reservoir engineering and surface facilities development; Interface data issues due to different schedule in design development between UFL and FPSO; Management of significant design data changes in throughput and treatment capacity during contract execution; Additional challenges to the FPSO development came from the following adverse events which occured during the course of the project execution: Yokogawa is in charge of the maintenance contract for the Integrated Control and Safety system which includes assistance on site for all components:
