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.

The six RB gensets are capable of providing the MW of electrical power needed to operate the subsea components of the field.
Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is fps, in some particular technical details and principals which have been incorporated in the design, such as:. Pressure maintenance in the reservoirs is necessary, with water injection in 4 of the reservoirs and gas injection in one. This article about an oil field is a stub.
Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Xkpo of the engineering tasks fabrication of components was carried out when the vessel reached Nigeria. 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.
Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: These were installed to provide electrical power for the FPSO vessel. Technip was the project manager and was also responsible for the initial engineering phase. 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. 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 skpo for the FPSO is Emerson Process Management who provides digital automation architecture to digitally integrate the topside module control systems. The vessel is m long, 61m wide and has facilities to accommodate crew members. Akpo fields Discovered inthe Akpo field is located in ultra deepwater of Nigeria.
Peer reviewed only Published between: The consortium was responsible for engineering, supply, construction, offshore commissioning and procurement of the vessel. This Rivers State location article is a stub.
Akpo – Wikipedia
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: 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 reservoir fluid is a critical fluid, which implies that the fluid type is dependent on pressure, temperature and depth. 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.

The Akpo hull has a storage capacity for two million barrels of oil and the deck was designed to accommodate 17 topside modules, which includes two processing trains for the separation of oil and water. The subsea infrastructure consists of kilometers of a complex The Akpo floating production storage and offloading vessel FPSO was commissioned in mid by Total Upstream Nigeria following the successful development of the Akpo oil and gas field, km south of Port Harcourt off the coast of Nigeria in West Africa.
The development includes 44 subsea wells 22 production, 20 water injection and 2 gas injection drilled in clustered subsea architecture. The Akpo development involves five reservoirs, deposited in a complex channels and lobe arrangement, situated at depth ranging from mSS to mSS.

The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO.
