Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO)


A Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) installation is a floating facility with processing equipments on the topside of the vessel for separation and treatment of crude oil, water and gases, arriving on board from subsea oil wells through a number of pipelines or risers that have been already installed on the seafloor. There are massive challenges that come with combining a subsea management facility, oil and gas processing and storage operation on a single vessel. 

The FPSO vessel is equipped to store the processed hydrocarbons in order to then be offloaded either by shuttle tankers or via pipelines to the shore.

Group B&T provides stainless steel, duplex, super duplex and nickel alloy pipes and tubes for FPSO vessel construction and maintenance.
