The second edition of Guidelines on the Marine Assessment of F(P)SOs is a complete framework for assessing the marine sections of Floating (Production) Storage and Offloading (F(P)SO) facilities against international legislation and industry best practice. It can also supplement any other internal assessments an F(P)SO operating company might carry out as part of its auditing process
The main body of the publication consists of 12 questionnaires and the relevant guidance, each covering a different part of F(P)SO. These include marine interfaces and how they relate to areas such as topside production, turret mooring, subsea systems, hydrocarbon offtake systems, pilots, support craft operators and local authorities. Four appendices look at the documents that support the assessment process.
