    Strong interest in FPSO project

    News // November 20, 2000
    Noble Denton in the UK reports that following distribution of the proposal and the launch meeting held in London 23 October, a wide range of companies have expressed a strong interest in its Floating Production, Storage & Offloading (FPSO) project.

    In addition to the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE), who have confirmed their participation, organisations such as BP, Shell, ExxonMobil, TotalFinaElf, Statoil, Mineral Management Service, ABB, ABS, Maersk, DNV, Lloyd's Register, Bouygues Offshore, Bluewater, Bureau Veritas, Norsk Hydro, Fred Olsen Energy, and the US Coastguard, have expressed an interest in participating.

    The next meeting was due to be held in Houston on 14 November, and the project team was also due to be at the 15th Annual Floating Production Systems conference in London, 11-12 December.

    The main aim of the project is to improve FPSO design in order to optimise system safety and reliability, which will in turn lower operating costs and capital requirement.
