Work with an open coalition to digitally connect your total asset journey, from reservoir to topside to continuously maximize value, minimize environmental impact, and create a new level of performance for your FPSO.

Evolve to Perform
Collaborate with an open coalition to accelerate the evolution of your FPSO design, build, and operations
Evolve FPSO performance through open collaboration and digitalization

FPSOs face a daily test to manage production variability that's impacted by the interaction between subsurface, subsea, and topside processes and equipment. This already challenging situation can be intensified by the growing emphasis on carbon footprint reduction and market volatility.

That’s why we’ve formed an open coalition to evolve your FPSO performance at any phase of its life cycle and at any scale by integrating

  • domain and OEM expertise, chemistry, and process technologies
  • automation, control, safety, and power
  • measurement and intelligent action
  • data contextualization.

We work with you to create a new level of performance for your FPSO from the reservoir to topside to continuously maximize value and minimize environmental impact.

Evolve your FPSO performance—without limits.

Evolve FPSO project design planning and execution to be ready for all operational scenarios

An FPSO can’t outperform a suboptimal project design.

For new FPSO builds, the open coalition streamlines scenario planning and concept design through its highly collaborative, efficient approach that infuses planning with agility. Starting from domain knowledge of the reservoir, Subsea Planner™ on Delfi™ rapidly iterates multiple concepts to configure the highest-performing subsea asset plan for interfacing with the FPSO. Facility Planner™ on Delfi accelerates identifying the optimal fit-for-purpose FPSO concept that balances scope, cost, project planning, and emissions. From processing through automation and control, all project interfaces are effectively derisked while designing in flow management improvements and size reductions.

With our OEM experience, we are extensively involved with data from a design standpoint, particularly concerning what is crucial to operations. By contextualizing this data for use in the FPSO’s operations, the coalition makes it possible to manage the entire life cycle of data associated with the FPSO.

By accounting for the long game in accelerating and future-proofing project design, your FPSO is able to achieve first oil and gas faster, inclusive of startup and commissioning activities.

Evolve your FPSO design process—without barriers.


Evolve FPSO operations to optimize production throughput

Improving your FPSO’s operations doesn’t mean imposing a one-size-fits-all solution. The coalition works with you to address your unique requirements for meeting your production specifications and achieving maximum throughput—even as field dynamics change over time.

This is where the open coalition brings the highest value: We can expand our industry partners as we identify and implement the most appropriate solutions and services for your challenges, including electrification and digitalization, autonomous capabilities, and intelligent asset performance management to seamlessly implement advanced workflows for monitoring, calibration, inspection, and maintenance.

Evolve to optimize performance—beyond the traditional constraints.

Evolve FPSOs to new levels of sustainability

From a single process or piece of equipment through the complete FPSO asset, every coalition project we conduct with you also examines reducing environmental impact and carbon footprint at scale. These options can include strategies for reducing flaring and overall emissions while simultaneously improving water quality and chemical and energy management.

Although the best time to influence carbon footprint reduction is during the design phase, other actions—such as implementing remote and autonomous operations and robotics—can be made throughout the FPSO life cycle to yield a significant impact.

Evolve sustainably—without sacrificing performance.
