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.

Technip was the project manager and was also responsible for the initial engineering phase. 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: Pressure maintenance in the reservoirs is necessary, with water injection in 4 of the reservoirs and gas injection in one.

Akpo is a standalone development based on a spread moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading FPSO moored in m water depth with a storage capacity of 2 million barrels of condensate. Retrieved from ” https: Apo development includes 44 subsea wells 22 production, 20 water injection and 2 gas injection drilled in clustered subsea architecture.

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The subsea infrastructure consists of kilometers of a complex Views Read Edit View history. Sources [ edit ] http: In addition, Total awarded a contract to Saipem to supply of all the umbilicals, flowlines and risers for the aakpo under a turnkey basis. The reservoir fluid is a critical fluid, which implies that the fluid type is dependent on pressure, temperature and depth.

In AprilCameron was contracted to provide the subsea production system including the supply of Christmas fpsoo, manifolds, connection systems, control systems and engineering.

You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. HHI was responsible for the construction of the hull and also the construction and integration of the topside modules. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ 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.

The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO.

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.

The subsea set up includes 22 oil and gas production wells, 20 water injection wells and two gas injection wells. These were installed to provide electrical power for the FPSO vessel.

For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Some of the engineering tasks fabrication of components was carried out when the vessel reached Nigeria.

Construction The vessel is m long, 61m wide and has facilities to accommodate crew members. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Authors Tchigique Bernard Total S.

The company performed a series of pre-commissioning services on the field’s flowlines and umbilicals.
