HOUSTON BW Offshore has contracted APL to supply a submerged turret production (STP) system for the Barossa gas and condensate field FPSO offshore Australia.

APL is part of NOV’s Completion & Production Solutions segment.

Located 186 mi (300 km) northwest of Darwin in the Timor Sea, the Santos-operated Barossa field features water depths ranging between 720 and 920 ft (220 and 280 m). The Barossa development will consist of infield subsea infrastructure tied back to an FPSO vessel. The FPSO will process high-pressure reservoir fluids for gas export to the Darwin LNG facility via a 180-mi (290-km) long subsea pipeline for condensate storage and offloading.

The STP system provides permanent mooring and connection to subsea facilities. The Barossa FPSO is designed for a 25-year life of uninterrupted operation without drydocking.

The STP is a flexible turret mooring system that includes a swivel, which is designed for high pressures, temperature, and volumes, and the system transfers all fluids, signals, and power between the subsea system and the freely weathervaning production vessel.
