Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO’s) are offshore production services which abode both processing equipments and storage for manufactured hydrocarbons. The fundamental design of most FPSOs takes a ship-shaped vessel. Subsequently after processing an FPSO, it stocks oil or gas prior to offloading to transfer tankers or for to transmit processed petroleum through pipelines. The system is an infallible system that enables cost efficiency and therefore becomes a very main asset when it comes to digging out oil in the marine areas. Read More
