The turret mooring system, which will be designed by FMC SOFEC Floating Systems, will consist of six equally spaced mooring legs, upper and lower turret modules, a swivel access structure and a spider buoy. The turret will be designed to accept 12 risers and umbilicals. The 930,000-barrel storage capacity FPSO vessel is being converted from an existing double-hull tanker by MODEC for Santos Ltd. and will be employed for the Mutineer-Exeter field, offshore northwestern Australia.
"We are pleased that FMC Technologies has been selected to supply this turret mooring system for Santos' Mutineer-Exeter Project," said Peter D. Kinnear, Executive Vice President - FMC Energy Systems. "The unique flexibility of the SOFEC® disconnectable turret system makes it an ideal choice for this project."
