Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) construction either is new build and /or conversion from existing ship. Somehow all FPSO are in rectangle shape with sharp head. The other type of Floating Production Unit (FPU) which is in a rather square shape.

New concept of potable floating unit are implemented recently. They consist of Floating Accommodation Unit (FAU), Floating Drilling Production Storage Offloading Unit (FDPSOU), Floating Gas Turbine Generator Unit (FGTG) and Floating Mobile Subsea Vehicle Unit (FMSVU).

All units are potable and inter-link between each and other. They can be added and relocated according operation demand.

These units have been constructed in YANTAI yard, China in 2005. Next post will includes the actual photos of these units.

With the deep water exploration, Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) is invented 30 years ago. With high cost in transportation of gas (for LNG production), Floating LNG extraction unit is invented and now...FIRST Floating Gas Refinery



World's First Advance Floating Gas Refinery
The World's First Advance Floating Gas Refinery took 7 years from concept stage to engineering completion and further 2 years for construction. This giant refinery weighs 35,000 T and 100,000 T with the carrying vessel (Blue Marlin of Dockwise BV). Refinery was constructed in Spain and presently operating for one of the gas fields in Artic Circle.

It processes the non associated gas collected through Sub Sea piping network and transports the processed gas through a Sub Sea pipeline to the onshore facility. It seems there are 5 gas turbines to run this whole refinery.
