The field will be equipped with subsea wells tied back toj a Floating Production (FPU), located ^Iir( above thek coi wells.

Oil productl field is scheduled to in October, and the will have a storage capacity of 112,000-cu-m, or roughly that produced in 10 days.

The passive turret mooring system is located in the forebody of the FSU. Crude oil from the FPU is transferred via a flexible riser and a swivel through the turret into the vessel.

The main electrical power supply (11 kV) will be transferred through the turret via electrical cables and a slip ring unit.

The FpLL^an reportedly be operated w^hoLt aVrew during normal operation.
