FPSO (floating production, storage & offloading)

Flame arresters, pressure reducing / regulating valves and low pressure tank protection

Storing oil and processing hydrocarbons often takes place on floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units, which require special protection from hazards. BIRKETT, AMAL and MARVAC provide protection solutions to users of FPSOs.

Protecting FPSOs

A floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit is a floating vessel used by the offshore oil and gas industry for the processing of hydrocarbons and for storage of oil. An FPSO vessel is designed to receive hydrocarbons produced from nearby platforms or subsea template, process them, and store oil until it can be offloaded onto a tanker or, less frequently, transported through a pipeline.

FPSOs are preferred in frontier offshore regions as they are easy to install, and do not require a local pipeline infrastructure to export oil. FPSOs can be a conversion of an oil tanker or can be a vessel built specially for the application. All of our products can be used on a FPSO and BIRKETT, AMAL Flame arresters and MARVAC offer particular advantages.
