VIDEO: Teekay’s Amundsen Class Shuttle Tanker

Teekay's Amundsen Class Shuttle Tanker

The ever-growing maritime industries developed the need for steady offshore drilling and moving of storage assets to fill the gap between production and transportation of offshore energy goods such as crude oil.

One of ways to transport crude oil from a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) to onshore storage is by using a shuttle tanker.

The shuttle tanker is a ship designed for oil transport from an off-shore oil field as an alternative to constructing oil pipelines.

In this Teekay Corporation’s animated video you can see how a shuttle tanker operates.
