Egina’s departure: the world’s largest FPSO
Tuesday 7th of November 2017
The world’s largest Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel left the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Geoje, South Korea under tow for its voyage to Nigeria.
The Egina FPSO was ordered by Total in 2013 for a total investment $3 billion covering the entire engineering, procurement, construction, transport, and commissioning phases of the project.
Once on stream, the field will have a production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day, with the Egina boasting 2.3 million barrels of storage capacity.
Tuesday’s departure of the gigantic floater marks the latest of three offshore mega-projects.
