VIDEO: Libra FPSO Conversion – By the Numbers


The video above shows the conversion of the 1995-built shuttle tanker Navion Norvegia into a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, the Pioneiro de Libra, explained by numbers.

Conducted for a joint venture between Odebrecht Oil & Gas and Teekay Offshore (OOGTK), the conversion required a project team of 162 people, a commissioning team of more than 40 people and more than 3,000 people working daily over the course of 2 years, according to Teekay Corporation.

Earlier this month, Singapore-based Jurong Shipyard held a naming ceremony for the vessel in the Tuas area of Singapore, where the project started in 2014.

Under its 12-year charter contract, the Pioneiro de Libra will operate on the Libra pre-salt field in the Santos Basin, offshore Brazil, with estimated reserves of 8 to 12 billion barrels.

The FPSO can operate at water depths of up to 2,400 meters, with a production capacity of 50,000 barrels of oil per day and daily compression capacity of four million cubic meters of gas.
