Frequently asked Questions
What is an FPSO?
Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessels, or FPSOs, are offshore production facilities that house both processing equipment and storage for produced hydrocarbons.
What is an FSO?
A vessel used only to store unrefined oil is referred to as a floating storage and offloading (FSO) vessel. Oil stored on an FSO is NEVER transferred to a production unit, but a tanker.
What is the difference between an FPSO and an FSO?
The difference between these new frontiers for deep water oil drilling is that the FPSO is directly connected to the oil drilling while the FSO is only concerned with storage.
What is an FLNG?
An FLNG is a Floating Liquid Natural Gas vessel just like an FPSO only that an FLNG is used for natural gas.
What is a Shuttle Tanker?
