Petrobras FPSO-P68 & P69-Brazil


    Project name: Petrobras FPSO-P68 & P69-Brazil
    Material: SMLS pipe ASTM A106 GR.B/API 5L GR.B PSL2 (partial ABS marine certified);
    LSAW pipe API 5L GR.B PSL2 (Final usage: Vessel building)Size: O.D 1/2"-24";
    ABOUT FPSO: A floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit is a floating vessel used by the offshore oil and gas industry for the production and processing of hydrocarbons, and for the storage of oil. An FPSO vessel is designed to receive hydrocarbons produced by itself or from nearby platforms or subsea template, process them, and store oil until it can be offloaded onto a tanker or, less frequently, transported through a pipeline. FPSOs are preferred in frontier offshore regions as they are easy to install, and do not require a local pipeline infrastructure to export oil. 
    FPSOs can be a conversion of an oil tanker or can be a vessel built specially for the application. A vessel used only to store oil (without processing it) is referred to as a floating storage and offloading vessel (FSO). There are also under construction (as at 2013) floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) vessels, which will extract and liquefy natural gas on board.
