Because of the nature of the oil and gas climate, we believe in maximising the choices available to our clients. This starts with access to opportunities that are not restricted by time-to-production.
Amplus has access to a range of stock hulls. This means it is quicker and less expensive to deploy early production vessels as no conversion is required.
Low Cost Spread Moored VPU, all the Amplus VPU options are sized to meet the specific client requirements with a large side mounted Riser Porch, which can support Multi-Riser and Control Umbilical requirements in a range of water depths.
The Turret Mooring System uses a Dis-connectable Moored Turret Buoy, which can support Multi-Riser and Control Umbilical requirements in a range of water depths. The Moored Turret Buoy and Riser system can be installed off the Project “Critical Path” ensuring the VPU can be connected and ready to commence operations within a few hours of arriving in the field.
Dynamically Positioned (DP) option with no mooring system required utilises a Dis-connectable Turret Buoy and can support Multi-Riser and Control Umbilical requirements. The SURF/SPS equipment is specifically designed for supporting DP Marginal and Early Production Vessels, ensuring minimal Mobilisation and Demobilisation costs, whilst offering clients access to early cashflow and detailed Reservoir Performance information. Unlike Conventional FPSO’s the DP VPU can sit directly over the Production Well(s).
Minimises CAPEX spend
Extremely cost-effective OPEX costs
Significantly reduces schedule to first oil
Significantly reduced SURF/SPS costs
Flexible contracting period(s)
Short mobilisation/demobilisation period. Turret Buoy and Riser System can be pre-installed before the Early Production Vessel arrives in the field
Flexibility to move field-to-field or regionally
Enables clients to understand the reservoir-production characteristics prior to making a decision on permanent production facility requirements for the field
Significantly improved flow assurance: the Early Production Vessel can sit directly above wells
