ABSTRACT This paper addresses the main characteristics of the AKPO FPSO. Although the FPSO is similar to other existing ones in terms of size, it is unique. Storage and Offloading unit (FPSO) of the AKPO field development, offshore Nigeria. The AKPO field is located on the Oil Mining License. (OML) offshore . The Akpo FPSO hull will have a storage capacity of two million barrels of oil and a large deck space to accommodate more than 17 topsides modules. Akpo’s.
