FLOATING PRODUCTION STORAGE AND OFFLOADING UNITS AND TOPSIDE FACILITIES
FLOATING PRODUCTION STORAGE AND OFFLOADING UNITS AND TOPSIDE FACILITIES


Floating Production Storage Offloading FPSO units have been in use since 1970. The first FPSO unit was the Shell Castellon, built in Spain. Currently, about 270 FPSO units are operated around the world and generally used in Brazil, the North Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, and West Africa. FPSO units are built to remain on location and continue operations during all their service life that is generally more than 20 years. FPSO Units should be properly designed and constructed to provide the prescribed operating life could be managed without any production interruptions. Topsides of FPSO units have different types of equipment and machinery for production and process. Design and types of equipment selection can be changed depends on location, oil or gas quality, and buyer, etc. In this article, common topside process units are examined and their technical descriptions are made. This study will contribute to the literature by combining incomplete and/or insufficient information on FPSO units and topside facilities.
