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.

In addition, Total awarded a contract to Saipem to supply of all the umbilicals, flowlines and risers for the vessel under a turnkey basis. The Akpo hull has a storage capacity for two million barrels of oil and the deck was designed to accommodate 17 topside modules, which includes a,po processing trains for the separation of oil and water.

The main automation contractor for the FPSO is Emerson Process Management who provides digital automation architecture to digitally integrate the topside module control systems.
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: Views Read Edit View history. For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes.
Field Development Beginning inthe Akpo field development project includes 44 wells — 22 production wells, 20 water injection wells and two gas injection — of which 22 have already been drilled, tied-back to an FPSO. HHI was responsible for the construction of the hull and also the construction and integration of the topside modules. The topside fabrication and fitting out was completed in December and the vessel began operations at OMLapproximately km south of Port Harcourt,Nigeria in March The company performed a series of pre-commissioning services on the field’s flowlines and umbilicals.

The Akpo floating production storage and offloading vessel FPSO was commissioned in mid by Total Upstream Nigeria following the successful development of the Akpo oil and gas akoo, km south of Port Harcourt off the coast of Nigeria in West Africa.
Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. HHI contracted Nexans to install 1,km of offshore cables for power and instrumentation infrastructure.

The consortium was responsible for engineering, supply, construction, offshore commissioning and procurement of the vessel. 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 fpsi 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. The subsea infrastructure consists of kilometers of a complex Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition.

Because of these particular characteristics, it was possible to start-up the AKPO field in a vpso time frame ahead of schedule and without any major problems.
The vessel is m long, 61m wide and has facilities to accommodate crew members. The six RB gensets are capable of providing the MW of electrical power needed to operate the subsea components of the field.
