Abstract This study presents the ways and means of detailed design and construction of an FPSO installed in the AKPO field, offshore Nigeria with a close attention on the offshore market in deepwater developments. First, we explain the overall process of the on-going AKPO FPSO from detailed design to construction and lessons learned from AKPO FPSO, contributing to successful design and construction of future FPSO’s. The design and construction of an FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage, and Off-loading unit) is divided into two parts: one for the hull system and the other for the topside system. The FEED (Front End Engineering Design) and specification on the FPSO commenced with the DBR (Design Basis Report). This resulted from a feasibility study on the exploration of the specific field in order to meet the market requirements for stabilized oil. We performed a detailed design of the hull system of AKPO FPSO based on the FEED and coordinated the overall FPSO designs of the hull and the topside systems, which were performed by other contractors. After finishing the detailed design of the FPSO, we performed the construction and integration of the hull and the topside. Second, we describe some problems and their solutions of the detailed design and construction of the AKPO FPSO. Through this study, readers will be able to learn the detailed design and construction of the FPSO.
