GIRASSOL FPSO Project / TotalFinaElf, Angola. The Girassol FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit) contract for the topsides includes a DCS . While the history of floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) is paved with record cost overruns and delays, through the description of the Girassol. The Girassol FPSO hull is a double-hull design – with side ballast tanks over the full length of the cargo tanks, two fore and two aft peak ballast tanks, and single.

Contact a Yokogawa Expert to learn how we can help you solve your challenges. Further developments are being assessed, and would consist of additional risers and associated utilities on the FPSO. Since the technology used in the process is new, and as wells start production one by one, the tools have to be very flexible so that modifications can be carried out online and single modifications downloaded without stopping production.

Accommodation and life saving. Parallel reservoir engineering and surface facilities development; Interface data issues due to different schedule in design development between UFL and FPSO; 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 initial “fast-track” approach of the Girassol development required the FPSO execution to face the following challenges: 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, having the following main characteristics: The key dates for the project were: 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.


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.

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.

These tools also helped during pre-commissioning at the yard, towing some of our engineers had a free cruise on board the FPSO to yirassol some modifications!

Main tanks are equally distributed portside and starboard side. Name of the ship. The FPSO is equipped with: Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. The Operator, in developing the FPSO, employed parallel engineering, functional specifications and an early involvement of the industry with an original contracting strategy in order to achieve the Girassol field development in less than six years from discovery to first oil setting a new standard for the Industry.

Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Sailaway of the FPSO from the construction yard in South Korea occurred at the end of March at a level of completion and commissioning never achieved before for a production unit of such complexity. Peer reviewed only Published between: About us Contact us Help Terms of use.

Support and safety systems are designed for people including visitors. Topsides General lay out The general layout of the topsides is governed by safety considerations with the most hazardous equipment being arranged away from the accommodation area Figures A-2 and A Co-ordination, team spirit and parallel engineering were the keys to successful completion of the assignment. 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.


Cathodic protection of the hull is performed by sacrificial anodes in the 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. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. The ability to perform modifications on-line is an essential factor in ensuring uninterrupted production. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition vpso Cofferdams are installed between methanol and cargo tanks, and between machinery space and cargo tanks.

Advanced search Show search help. The FPSO described here is now the only visible facility of this pioneering project for the offshore industry Figure A Yokogawa was able to achieve this using its standard tools.
