SHI Secures Order For FPSO

Thursday, May 02, 2002
SHI received an order for a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility worth US$140 million from Husky Oil Operations Ltd. of Canada on the 31st. As a competitive solution for the development of offshore oil and gas resources capable of the production, storage and offloading of crude oil and gas, an FPSO is a special facility suitable for the development of a medium size deep-sea oil and gas field due to its mobility.The FPSO facility SHI received an order for from Husky Oil Operations Ltd. is of 133,000 tonsmeasuring 272m(L) x 46m(W) x 27m(D). Capable of storing 940,000 barrels, it will be producing maximum 120,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the end of 2004 at the Whit Rose oil field located approximately 350 kilometers off the east coast of Newfoundland, Canada. The oil field is estimated to have 250 million barrels of oil reservoir. In consideration of the harsh environment of this oil field where there are heavy waves anda lot of floating icebergs, the FPSO facility will be equipped with a leading edge control system that enables the evacuation to a safe place or change of direction by using its twin screw in caseit falls into a dangerous situation of colliding with floating icebergs. And the hull of the vessel is going to be specially designed strong enough to resist the heaviest waves of the last century and collision with an iceberg of 10,000 tons.SHI has delivered an FPSO facility to the Shell consortium in Nigeria in November 2001 and also successfully completed a CTOC offshore complex including an FSO, the biggest offshore platform in Asia, at the end of last month. SHI is attaining comprehensive achievements in the offshore sector by securing many orders including an FPSO ordered from Shell in the UK and an LPG-FSO ordered from Phillips in the US, which are currently under construction at SHI's Geoje shipyard.
