The ship consists of six centrifugal compressor trains: three medium/high pressure and two low pressure trains and one fuel gas compressor train driven by a fixed speed electric motor. The FPSO will be able to process 90,000 barrels of crude oil, 75 million cubic feet of gas and 120,000 barrels of water injection per day. It further has a storage capacity of 900,000 barrels of crude oil.
