ABSTRACT This paper addresses the main characteristics of the AKPO FPSO. Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is unique. Storage and Offloading unit (FPSO) of the AKPO field development, offshore Nigeria. The AKPO field is located on the Oil Mining License. (OML) offshore . The Akpo FPSO hull will have a storage capacity of two million barrels of oil and a large deck space to accommodate more than 17 topsides modules. Akpo’s.

Because of these particular characteristics, it was possible to start-up the AKPO field in a limited time frame ahead of schedule and ak;o any major problems. Akpo is a standalone development based on a spread moored Floating Production Storage and Offloading FPSO moored in m water depth with a storage capacity of 2 million barrels of condensate.
The stabilized condensate is exported via offloading lines and a deep water buoy located 2 km away from the FPSO. The Akpo development involves five reservoirs, deposited in a complex channels and lobe arrangement, situated at depth ranging from mSS to mSS. The reservoir fluid is a critical fluid, which implies that the fluid type is dependent on pressure, temperature and depth.
Pressure maintenance in the reservoirs is necessary, with water injection in 4 of the reservoirs and gas injection in one. The development includes 44 subsea wells 22 production, 20 water injection and 2 gas injection drilled in clustered subsea architecture.
For the initial production start-up, around half of these wells are required to be online for production and reservoir pressure maintenance purposes. Log in to your subscription Username.
