160 fire doors to the Glen Lyon FPSO
Located West of Shetland in the UK, the Quad 204 is an ambitious project to construct a new Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit to replace the existing Schiehallion FPSO. The new Glen Lyon FPSO measures 270 metres long by 52 metres wide. It will be able to process and export up to 130,000 barrels of oil a day and store up to 800,000 barrels. This will also include an extension of the existing subsea system with 15 new and replacement flow lines and 21 new and replacement risers.
The new FPSO, the Glen Lyon, will arrive west of Shetland in 2016.
