The oil boom in Brazil with FPSO

After the discovery of the Brazilian pre-salt and the country making the ninth largest producer of oil, there was also a milestone in the P&G branch that were the FPSO. Floating production vessels, storage and discharge (FPSO) perform multiple functions by pumping fluids and natural gas from the submarine reservoirs falling below the surface of the ocean, then separating crude and associated gas from water and impurities.

Today, FPSO systems have become the main method for many offshore regions of oil and gas production around the world, and experts claim that without them, the exploration of the offshore “pre-salt” would be Impossible. These structures have the capacity to process up to 180,000 barrels oil per day and store more than 1.4 million barrels.

In addition, they fit in a wide variety of water depth, environmental conditions and can be designed with the ability to remain on site for continuous operations for 20 years or more.
