Cachalote Relocation of FPSO Capixaba

Project Summary:

Amine Sweetening Module, 750 Metric Tons

Key Facts:


Petrobras / SBM Atlantia


SBM / Petrobras elected to re-locate the FPSO to a new field called Cachalote. The new field had a high concentration of H2S in the Gas stream which was not present at the original Capixaba location.

VME Solution:

EPC Modular solution to add an Amine Gas Sweetening Module to the original FPSO. This design solution allowed the new module to be installed on the existing FPSO and reduced H2S to less than 5.0 ppm and achieved an outlet specification of 0.25 vol% of C02. As this module was not part of the original FPSO design there were a lot of space constraints in order to fit this module onto the FPSO.
