A major Chinese shipbuilder on Tuesday delivered a huge floating oil and gas production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel to Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras.
The FPSO Cidade de Saquarema has a daily processing capacity of 150,000 barrels of crude oil and 6 million cubic feet of gas. It has a storage capacity of 1.6 million barrels of crude oil.
China State Shipping Corporation and Dutch-based SBM Offshore are contractors of the refurbishment and conversion of the once super large oil tanker.
The FPSO Cidade de Saquarema is now 346.5 meters long and 58 meters wide, with a deck as large as three soccer stadiums.
