FPSO

FPSO is a ship floating production, storage and unloading of oil and gas. Uses system processing and storage prior to any discharge to a tanker or used to transport these materials to a pipeline. A major advantage of the use of FPSO, in the offshore industry, is that it works in conjunction with an oil / gas or a submarine model. It processes and stores the oil / gas for discharge when necessary.

The FPSO ships used in oil and gas fields have the prerogative to be able to be relocated elsewhere. Since these ships are no longer needed in a oil field, they are simply transferred to another region, so that may be utilized again. In comparison to fixed installations, the FPSO's have a much higher cost-benefit relation, as fixed installations are more expensive and can be used at only one point.

An FPSO has another advantage over the fixed platforms, it can be easily converted into a tanker, offering support as a transport vessel, again reducing costs and providing an effective framework for the offshore sector.

P-48

The P-48 consists of oil and gas fields in water depths ranging from 600 to 1,350 meters. The P-48 can produce up to 150,000 barrels per day and store two million barrels of oil.


P-50

The P-50 is capable of producing up to 180 thousand barrels of oil per day (bpd), six million cubic meters of natural gas per day and store 1.6 million barrels of oil. It is an FPSO unit which has the characteristic to produce, process, store and dispose of oil and gas. The platform has a length of 337 meters, silent (when submerged) of 21 meters and 55 meters in height (equivalent to an eighteen floor building).

The P-50 has received special notoriety among Petrobras production platforms, have characterized Brazil's temporary self-sufficiency in oil production recorded at the time, obtained after 53 years of work by the company and various Brazilian governments since Getulio Vargas.

P-54

The P-54 was designed to produce 180 thousand barrels per day. The difference is that the platform when it reaches peak production, increases the capacity field of 280 thousand to 460 thousand barrels per day, contributing to the sustainability of self-sufficiency in oil. .

She still is capable of compressing 6 million cubic meters of gas per day and store up to 2 million barrels of oil. It is a copy of the P-50, the unit that entered the history of oil in Brazil as the "platform of self-sufficiency."

Drillships

They are drilling ships that have hull of a ship similar to normal, but with a central opening, the "moonpool" where it is executed drilling activity, and are able to achieve normal speed cargo ships. His rig is located in the center of the ship, where an opening in the hull allows the passage of the drill string. The positioning system of the drill ship, composed of acoustic sensors, computers and thrusters, negates the effects of wind, waves and currents tend to move the ship from its position.
