The MOPU 3000 has been developed to operate in medium and harsh environments. It is particularly suitable for marginal field developments where a number of wells produce through subsea tiebacks to a central processing hub. The MOPU functions as the latter and has all topsides installed to facilitate the processing of produced and incoming well fluids. The export of oil and gas is effected either to an FSO or through a pipeline to shore. The MOPU is completely built and commissioned at the inshore yard location prior to tow-out to the field. Fast installation is accomplished through the integrated 4-legged self elevating platform system. The leg footing system is versatile in that it can accommodate a range of soil conditions in the field. The tieback flowlines and umbilicals connecting to the subsea wells are inherently safe, being protected in a side-mounted protective caisson. At the end of field life the unit can be redeployed to another field location using its own jacking systems.
