Project Objectives

The objective of this project was to study the feasibility of a circular shaped floating platform unit as compared to two current FPU concepts, semi-sub and spars. The floater host was located in 2,000-3,000 meters of water depth. Production was gathered via four production risers from two separate drill centers. The plan was to have gas exported with a gas riser/pipeline. The drill centersl sustained a total of 10 wells. Each well was connected to wet trees controlled via umbilicals and power cables. Artificial lifts supplied by either subsea pumps or downhole electric submersible pumps, was required. Processed oil was directly offloaded from a single offloading station. It is anticipated that capacity for three additional risers for future improved oil recovery via water injection and/or future tie-ins will be required.
