این شناور FPSO به طول ۳۰۰ متر برای نصب در میدان Jubilee در کشور غنا ساخته شد.تخمین زده شده که این میدان بزرگ نفتی دارای ۱.۸ میلیارد بشکه نفت خام است . این میدان نفتی در سال ۲۰۰۷ میلادی توسط شرکت نفتی “تالو اویل” کشف شد .اکنون این شرکت مشغول کار بر روی پتانسیل های این میدان نفتی است .
This is Jurong in Singapore , where Modoc have been building the Jubilee FPSO , or floating production storage and off-loading unit. OR at least they’ve been building part of it. As one key element has been made a little further north. [MUSIC] In Johor, Malaysia . This is the FPSO’s turret , which is being built by Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering. Twin tract construction to help speed progress along a fast-track schedule. Jubilee’s planners have been asked to shave not months. But years from the time typically taken to turn a discovery into a productive field. That was also the thinking behind the decision not to build a new FPSO from scratch but to convert an existing tanker. At 335 meters long the FPSO is a very big beast indeed. And theconversion work will transform almost every corner, inside and out. Piece after piece, system after system has had to be replaced or upgraded to ensure that the FPSO will be able to process Jubilee’s huge output of oil and gas safely and reliably. A huge amount to do then [MUSIC] But by the Autumn of 2009, work has far enough advanced for an official tour of inspection. >> I’m really more than happy. I’m really encourage that these let us a great seed, and I hope that we will continue to work together for the near future. Today knowing that on schedule in terms of quality. In terms of time, in terms of cost, gives me the assurance that definitely there will be fresh oil come December of last quarter next year. >> A series of modules built in Singapore , Malaysia and Indonesia will provide essential utilities for the FP is so and a range of. Discussing capability. Chemical injection, power generation , water treatment, oil processing . One after another, in fair weather or foul, 18 modules have to be lifted up and set in place on the FPSO’s deck. The modules are sizable items in their own right. With a total weight of more than 13,000 tons. [MUSIC] this is one of the gas compression modules. Built by Dynamic Engineeringin Singapore , it’s able to handle up to 160 million standard cubic feet of gas a day. Initially. The gas will be reinjected into the Jubilee Reservoirs, so as tominimize flaring. But once the export pipeline has been completed, it will be sent ashore to provide energy for communities and industries across Ghana. Other modules will enable the FPSO to treat 230,000 barrels of sea water a day. Also through injections into the reservoir. And of course to process oil, 120,000 barrels of it a day through two process trains. In Malaysia , the [xx] is rapidly taking shape. It’s one of the largest of it’s type built anywhere in the world and it plays a number of critical roles in the development plan. At it’s base are a series of slots through which hydrocarbons. Will be fed up into the [UNKNOWN], and water and gas will be sent back down towards the reservoir >> So we’re at the very bottom of the turret structure, this is basically where the sub sea architecture meets the [UNKNOWN], basically what you have, is you have the big diameter tubes are coming here. These are for your production of your oil, injection of water and gas, and exporting of gas, these tubes are angled on a [UNKNOWN] for the departure of the risers, and it’s important for the internal of the tubes to be very smooth, so that the pulling cable or wire does not get snagged or damaged during the pull in of the riser. So I was just walking around checking the inside of the tubes. Just to see how good of a job they done. They done an extremely good job smoothing out the transition inside the tubes. [MUSIC] >> The [INAUDIBLE] also has it’s own billet cords. Cables which run between the FPSO and the array of sophisticated hardware installed on the sea bed. [MUSIC] They carry hydraulic fluids, power and a variety of control signals. >> One of the main things about this piece of equipment, is just the sheer amount sort of a mechanical fabrication that goes on here. All of the pipes, all of the various structures and components, all come together. And one of the most interesting things is actually in here, is an eight meter diameter bearing. Like the baring on a car wheel, but this one is actually eight meters in diameter. Machined in Germany and it forms a center of this whole sort of structure is built on top of that baring. And the whole structure itself is about 2000 tons and is would be 60 to 70 meters tall when it’s finally finished. Before too much longer MMA chiefs work here in Jahore is finally done. And the tow it can be shipped out to Singapore for installation. this is the project’s biggest lift so far and one of the trickiest, slowly and precisely. The crane operator has to nudge this massive complex load into place at the bow of the [UNKNOWN], to complicate matters a little further, some rough weather rolls in from the [UNKNOWN], testing times, but finally the [UNKNOWN]. Tube into place. It’s a major milestone for theJubilee development, but there’s no time yet to celebrate. First, there’s another big lift to complete. This structure will allow access to the various production systems housed on the turret . [MUSIC] [MUSIC] And when that’s in place, there’s a lot more to be done behind the scenes. Hooking up andchecking every component and system. System to ensure that as much as possibly is complete, before the FPSO , leaves the key. A couple of months of intensive work, and it’s time for another tour of inspection. The jubilee development, has generated a great deal of interest back in Ghana. So along with the politicians, and other government officials, a group of journalist, have come to find out what all the fuss is about. If you look at the pace of work. If you look at the commitment, if you look at the synergy is so exemplary. And it shows what our people can do when they are united and when they pull all the effort and resources together. And this certainly would be a model project for many people. In many many years to come. [SOUND] >> A couple ofmonths on and the site team at Jirong are getting the fpso ready for it’s official naming ceremony. [MUSIC] Ghana’s first lady, Mrs. Ernestine Enardo Mills, arrives to do the honors. >> It is an honor. And a pleasant duty for me to be part of this morning’s events. >> Taking off [NOISE]. >> 50 years previously, Doctor Kwame Nkrumah had led Ghana to independence. So the FPSO has a lot to live up to. Hopes in Ghana are certainly high. [MUSIC] Before too long, the FPSO was off in the first stage in its journey to try to turn those dreams into reality. Ahead of it lay an 11,000 mile journey across the Indian Ocean. Ship around the cape and up the west African coast and beyond that 20 years or more of service during which it can play its part in helping to boost the economy of Ghana. And improve the lives of many Ghanaians.
