Amec has been selected by Brazilian company Quip to perform basic engineering services for the topsides of the P-63 floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

The P63 FPSO vessel, which is to be operated on behalf of Petrobras, Brazil’s national oil company, will be used to develop the Papa Terra heavy oil field in the Campos Basin off Brazil.

The field is located about 68 miles (110km) off Rio de Janeiro in water depths of up to 3,940ft (1,200m).

The P-63 FPSO vessel will have about 16 topside modules with a total weight of more than 14,000 metric tons.

The topside facilities include three oil-processing modules; one gas-compression module; three electrical power-generation modules; two water-treating and injection modules; one electrical building module; three utilities modules; one flare-system module; and two manifold modules.

A pipe rack measuring more than 200m in length will be designed to incorporate a material-handling trolley.

The FPSO topside facilities will be designed to process approximately 140,000 barrels per day (BPD) of crude oil, 35 million metric standard cubic feet per day of gas and 325,000 BPD of produced water.

Facilities to inject approximately 340,000 BPD of seawater are also included.

Engineering for the P-63 FPSO topsides will be managed from Amec’s Houston offices.

Fabrication and integration will be conducted at the Quip facility in Rio Grande, Brazil.
