The FSO Ta'Kuntah is designed to receive a throughput of 800,000 bopd and to perform both tandem and side-by-side offloadings, the only facility in the world designed to conduct this operation simultaneously.
The SOFEC mooring system has also proven to be an impressive component of this facility. The fluid swivel has remained tight with no leakage and no maintenance required to date.
During this period, FSO Ta'Kuntah offloaded 25% of the ships exporting oil in the marine northeastern region and exported the same percentage of oil which emphasizes the strategic importance of the facility for this region.

Our offshore crew, with effective support from the site office in Ciudad del Carmen and the Houston Corporate office, has overcome this challenge while maintaining a most satisfactory HSE record," commented Shashank Karve, President and CEO, MODEC International, LLC.
