VIDEO: Glen Lyon FPSO from the bird’s-eye perspective
The video above, shared by the UK oil giant BP, shows the giant Glen Lyon FPSO from the bird’s-eye perspective.
Replacing the original Schiehallion FPSO, the 270-meter Glen Lyon FPSO, moored in the North Sea west of the Shetland Islands, is getting ready for a start of production from the Quad204 offshore project.
The multi-billion dollar project entails redevelopment of Schiehallion and Loyal fields in the UK North Sea, which have produced nearly 400 million barrels of oil since production started in 1998.
The Quad204 development aims to access the remaining estimated 450 million barrels of resource still available, extending production out to 2035 and possibly beyond.
Built at the Hyundai Heavy Industries shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea, the Glen Lyon FPSO will be able to process and export up to 130,000 barrels of oil a day and store up to 800,000 barrels.
BP owns 36.3%, with other interests as follows: Shell 54.03% and OMV 9.67%.
