Jack-up based production platforms have proven to be flexible and reliable solutions for specific field development concepts. A jack-up based production platform, or MOPU for Mobile Offshore Production Unit, is typically a good solution for fields that have a shorter expected production life, are very remote and smaller topsides facilities. These characteristics make them ideally suited for early production, marginal or stranded fields or augmentation of existing facilities in late life.
GustoMSC MOPU technology
GustoMSC has been involved in multiple MOPU projects based on both its CJ series of drilling Jack-Ups and SEA series of Jack-up barges. With the PJ series typically suitable for deeper and harsher environments, the SEA series offer a cost efficient solution for typically shallower and more benign environments.
