FSO Project Short FSO Project

In 2011 PB Tankers has decided to enter the off-shore business, in order to diversify the range of its business activities by investing significant financial, technical and human resources.

A Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) unit is a floating storage vessel used by the oil and gas industry for the storage of hydrocarbons. An FSO is designed to receive hydrocarbons produced from nearby platforms or subsea templates and store oil product until it can be offloaded into a tanker or, less frequently, transported through a pipeline.

The FSO has evolved from being a technology for marginal fields to one used in larger sites. Over the last ten years, FSOs have become the primary choice for field development in many areas of the world.
