The Shell Penguin FPSO undertaken by Offshore Oil Engineering Co., Ltd. was completed and delivered in Qingdao. This is the largest and most intelligent new cylindrical FPSO built by a Chinese company so far. It has the ability to withstand harsh sea conditions Strong ability, wide range of adaptability to water depth, less steel consumption, high economic applicability and other significant advantages.

Penguin FPSO has an oil storage capacity of 400,000 barrels, a crude oil processing capacity of 12.75 million barrels per year, and a natural gas processing capacity of 1.24 billion cubic meters per year. The diameter of the double bottom of the hull is 87.5 meters, the total weight is about 32,000 tons, and the total operating weight is 88,000 tons. Through the three central control systems including the fire and gas system, emergency shutdown system, and process control system, the "Skynet" monitoring system installed in every corner is commanded. Penguin FPSO can precisely control the production process of the entire ship, and realize on-site monitoring "without leaving home". Automation and intelligent remote control of equipment.

Penguin FPSO is used in the North Sea of ??the United Kingdom with harsh sea conditions. It can not return to dock for 20 years. The whole ship is composed of more than 1 million parts. On the circular deck with a diameter of 78 meters, 217 sets of large-scale mechanical equipment and more than 17,000 units are integrated. One set of equipment and facilities, the minimum equipment spacing is less than 10 mm, nearly 55,000 professional supports, and the total length of cable laying is 800,000 meters. The Norwegian NORSOK standard also needs to meet the requirements of the EU PED pressure equipment guidelines, ATEX explosion protection, and a number of British and American standards.

Compared with the conventional ship type, the cylindrical FPSO has more complex production process, more compact space layout, higher degree of integration, and stricter construction technical requirements. Since the start of construction in 2018, COOEC has joined hands with partners to overcome the severe impact of the global new crown epidemic and the impact of material supply chains. The system has broken through key problems such as ultra-high-precision installation of cable fairleads and integrated final assembly in compact spaces, and realized 5 first-time application technologies And more than 20 technological innovations, created an integration speed record of completing 18 hoisting operations in 27 days, and realized millimeter-level precision control of key equipment.

In recent years, COOEC has successively delivered many large-scale international energy equipment engineering projects such as Yamal LNG and Brazil P67/P70 FPSO projects, and has demonstrated good engineering contract performance capabilities in the field of large-scale floating production units and modular plant construction.
