Watch BP Build An FPSO In 1 Minute (Time Lapse Video)

Watch how BP built their Glen Lyon Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel in this time-lapse video.

The state-of-the-art FPSO will eventually make a journey across the world to work on the £3billion Quad 204 redevelopment project of the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, west of Shetland.

Glen Lyon replaces the Schiehallion FPSO, which started producing oil in 1998 and continued doing so for 15 years until operations were suspended for Quad204 subsea work.

South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries signed a contract worth about $780million to build the Glen Lyon FPSO for Quad 204 in February 2011.

The vessel has a storage capacity of 900,000 barrels of oil and is expected to process 130,000 barrels of oil and 220 million standard cubic feet of gas per day.
