Falcon Spirit FSO

  1. 1. www.teekay.com Falcon Spirit CONVERSION OF A 1986 SHUTTLE TANKER TO A FLOATING STORAGE AND OFFLOADING UNIT Client: Occidental Petroleum Location: Al Rayyan Field, offshore Qartar The Project Occidental Petroleum was looking for an FSO vessel for deployment on the Al Rayyan Field offshore Qatar. Teekay was awarded the contract in April 2009 and delivery of the Falcon Spirit took place 8 months later, in December 2009. This fast track project included procurement of the FSO equipment and a conversion of the former shuttle tanker Sarita. Al Rayyan is a large oil field located offshore Qatar. The field is developed by a production jack-up rig and the Falcon Spirit for storage. The FSO is moored to an SBM buoy using the standard Bow Loading Equipment that has formerly been used for 23 years on the vessel as a shuttle tanker. Conventional tankers moor to the stern of the Falcon Spirit for cargo transfer once every two months. The Vessel The vessel is a 125 000 dwt double hull Crude Oil Tanker built by Daewoo Shipbuilding and Heavy Machinery, Korea in 1986.
