Agbami FPSO
Developed by an FPSO, Agbami came online on July 29, 2008. The Agbami FPSO is designed to handle 250,000 bopd, with an additional 450 MMcf/d and 450,000 barrels of injected water per day.
Daewoo Shipping and Marine was contracted to provide the FPSO for a consideration of $1.1 billion. Daewoo subcontracted to KBR, which provided the topside design and procurement services for the FPSO. The vessel has a storage capacity of 2.2 million barrels of oil and is designed to be on location for 20 years.

Weighing in at 30,000 tons, 13 topsides will generate 75 megawatts of power and have living quarters for 100 personnel. Development required 6,500 tons of fabrication, as well as 300,000 man-hours of engineering and services.

The field is expected to produce more than 100,000 bopd initially, and by the close of 2009, production increased to 250,000 barrels of crude oil and natural gas liquids per day.
