Abstract While the history of floating production storage and offloading FPSO is paved with record cost overruns and delays, through the description of the Girassol FPSO project, this paper presents the ways and means used by the Operator- TotalFinaElf – to manage the successful development of the world’s largest deepwater FPSO installed in the Girassol field, offshore Angola.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Further developments are being assessed, and would consist of additional cpso and associated utilities on the FPSO. Once this phase had been completed and validated by all the partners, the application configuration was performed using user friendly tools which secured the application and facilitated the tests. All ballast tanks are painted and the hull exterior is protected by impressed current.

The initial “fast-track” approach of the Girassol development required the FPSO execution to face the following challenges: Another key success factor was that Yokogawa shipped equipment to certain package vendors in order to validate the interface up as far as the man-machine operator interface.

The control giraesol monitoring include not only the topsides modules but also the subsea equipment and the vessel packages.


Peer reviewed only Published between: Parallel reservoir engineering and surface facilities development; Interface data issues due to different schedule in design development between UFL and Gkrassol Management of significant design data changes in throughput and treatment capacity during contract execution; Additional challenges to the FPSO development came from the following adverse events which occured during the course of the project execution: The FPSO is equipped with: Yokogawa is in charge of the maintenance contract for the Integrated Control and Safety system which includes assistance on site for all components: The methodology for keeping track of modifications is of course closely monitored.

Yokogawa was able to achieve this using its standard tools.

Log in to your subscription Username. Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. Introduction Discovered in Aprilthe Girassol field development was sanctioned two years later in July based on a subsea production scenario associated with a large FPSO, hirassol the following main characteristics: Accommodation and life saving The living quarters provide accommodation for persons into eight executive cabins, twelve single bed cabins, sixty double bed cabins.

Cathodic protection of the hull is performed by sacrificial anodes in the tanks. From the first months after discovery, the Girassol FPSO development history described here presents how the Operatorand its Contractors, through the contracting strategy, the main architectural choices and project execution, faced these challenges and managed the successful FPSO development, crowned by ffpso oil 41 months after project sanction. Support and safety systems are designed for people including visitors.

The hull construction subcontract was performed in 19 months and the construction of the 25,tonnes topsides subcontract was done in 21 months. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Advanced search Show search help.

The ability to perform modifications on-line is an essential factor in ensuring griassol production. The living quarters provide accommodation for persons into eight executive cabins, twelve single bed cabins. The completion, just 33 months after the award of a contract based on functional specifications, constituted a new benchmark for future FPSO’s.

Topsides General lay out The general layout of the topsides is governed by safety considerations cpso the most hazardous equipment being arranged away from the accommodation area Figures A-2 and A Contact a Yokogawa Expert to learn how we can help you solve your challenges. Cofferdams are installed between methanol and cargo tanks, and between machinery space and cargo tanks. Yokogawa is very pleased to have been able to take part in this major project, which requires not only long-term support and integration but also co-ordination and close partnership with the key players.

The first phase of the project involved defining the guidelines which would provide the basis for the application configuration while the detailed engineering was in progress. The key dates for the girssol were: Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. The FPSO described here is now the only visible facility of this pioneering project for the offshore industry Figure A These tools also helped during pre-commissioning at the yard, towing some of our engineers had a free cruise on board the FPSO to finalise some modifications!

Yokogawa is currently implementing the JASMIN project for an extension of the field, which involves two additional risers one line of 6 production wells and one line of 4 injection wellsgiving a total of 52 wells. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Name of the ship. Main tanks are equally distributed portside and starboard side. The main difficulty of the project lay in the fact that only pre-basic engineering studies had been completed when the DCS was awarded, meaning that the engineers working on gifassol project had to perform several tasks in parallel during detailed engineering.
