Currently, many FPSO projects are either underway or on the horizon globally. Who can do the work? What are the best tools for completing the project? These are the questions that engineering contractors will be asking in each case.

PIPENET is often engineers’ choice No.1 for the design and analysis of various systems and subsystems on an FPSO.

One of the most important considerations is fire safety.  In the worst case scenario, can people be evacuated from an FPSO quickly? The helicopter landing area is especially important.  And damage must be limited to all areas, quickly.

Another important aspect of design is loading and unloading systems. FPSOs need loading and unloading systems.  They cannot afford a leak, need to be sure that flexible hoses will sustain the load, and cargo can be controlled throughout the loading and unloading process.
