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.

For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes.
The main automation contractor for the FPSO is Emerson Process Management who provides digital automation architecture to digitally integrate the topside module control systems. Some of the engineering tasks fabrication of components was carried out when the vessel reached Nigeria.
The Akpo hull has a storage akppo for two million barrels of oil and the deck was designed to accommodate 17 topside modules, which includes two processing trains dpso the separation of oil and water.
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. This Rivers State location article is a stub.
Authors Tchigique Bernard Total S. The subsea infrastructure consists of kilometers of a complex In addition, Total awarded a contract to Saipem to supply of all the umbilicals, flowlines and risers for the vessel under a turnkey basis.
Total’s Akpo Starts Producing Offshore Nigeria
Fps were installed to provide electrical power for the FPSO vessel. Akpo fields Discovered inthe Akpo field is located in ultra deepwater of Nigeria.
The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO. Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: HHI was responsible for the construction of the hull and also the construction and integration of the topside modules.
The reservoir fluid is a critical fluid, which implies that the fluid type is dependent on fpeo, temperature and depth.

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. The six RB gensets are capable of providing the MW of electrical power needed to operate the subsea components of the field.
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 Views Read Edit View history. 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:. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: The Akpo development involves five reservoirs, deposited in a complex channels and lobe arrangement, situated at depth ranging from mSS to mSS.
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. This page was last edited on 6 Octoberat 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.
