FPSO Overview

Learn more about the FPSO by exploring the unit below. 

Turret & swivel stack

The turret anchors the FPSO in place, and allows the FPSO to rotate freely with wind and current.

The swivel transfers the oil and gas from the reservoir via the anchored part of the turret which is stationary to the ship side of the turret which rotates with the FPSO.

The turret and swivel allows deployment of the FPSO to locations with severe weather, and ensures safe operation in the most demanding conditions.
