    Yantai Raffles delivers FSO

    Yard News // February 14, 2003
    Yantai Raffles Shipyard has provided more details of the new build 210m x 32m x 12.6m,400,000bbls Floating Storage & Offloading (FSO) Pathumabaha that it recently completed for MODEC/PTTEP/TOTALFINAELF/BRISTISH GAS.

    The FSO will operate on the Bong Kot field in the Gulf of Thailand, 180km northwest of the coast of Songkhla province.

    The vessel is to keep the station with an external turret mooring system in the bow (also built by Yantai Raffles for FMCT/SOFEC, USA ) which allows the vessel to weathervane to take in any direction by the wind, wave and current.

    The condensate produced at Bongkot Production Platform comes through subsea pipelines, PLEM, riser(s) and fluid swivel to the vessel. The incoming condensate goes into the receiving tank for further settling to stock tank condition.

    Loading rate of condensate is about 25,000bbl/day. The FSO is designed to remain on site during design life of 15 years without dry-docking and has accommodation for 60 men.
