  • FPSO: Floating Production, Storage and Offloading.
  • Typically a tanker type hull or barge with wellheads on a turret that the ship can rotate freely around (to point into wind, waves or current).
  • The turret has wire rope and chain connections to several anchors (position mooring - POSMOR), or it can be dynamically positioned using thrusters (dynamic positioning – DYNPOS). Water depths 200 to 2000 meters.
  • Common with subsea wells. The main process is placed on the deck, while the hull is used for storage and offloading to a shuttle tanker.
  • A comprehensive database FPSOs, see Global Floating Production Storage And Offloading Vessels (FPSO) Wiki
