SYNOPSIS

Malaysia is emerging as a major deep-water oil and gas production hub. Starting from 1998, the first weathervane FPSO was installed named FPSO Perintis. Continually, the weathervane mooring type FPSO was constructed and installed such as Bunga Kertas, FPSO Kikeh and the latest is FSO Bergading mainly external turret anchored. The water depth is range from 60m to 1300m water depth.

This presentation will cover the engineering aspects of an external turret system. The external turret system is attached to the hull of the tanker and allows the tanker to freely weathervane and thereby takes up the least resistance to the combined forces of wind, waves and current. The external turret mooring system is composed of a stationary turret part connected to the external vessel’s structure via a roller type bearing. The turret part is secured to the seabed by catenary or (semi) taught mooring legs to provide sufficient restoring forces to keep the vessel within a design excursion limit. This excursion limit ensures the safe working of the underwater fluid transfer riser system from the seafloor to the turret.
