The riser-friendly LM-FPSO is capable of operating from ultra-deep (3000m+) to shallow water fields. The design maintains all the advantages of conventional FPSOs while enabling the use of more robust and cost-effective riser solutions, such as steel catenary risers (SCRs) and top tensioned risers (TTRs). Crucially, the LM-FPSO does not need a turret or swivel, which offers major additional savings versus traditional solutions.
Comprised of field-proven components, the reliable LM technology significantly improves platform habitation and helicopter operation while maintaining quayside integration. The technology’s improved stability also makes the floater less sensitive to the topside vertical

The LM-FPSO’s superior motion response enables the application of large diameter SCRs in wet-tree applications. It also supports the hosting of TTRs in dry-tree applications and well drilling and completions from the floater, which is currently not feasible on conventional FPSOs due to their inherently high motion response.
The LM-FPSO is currently undergoing certification by DNV.
Intecsea will be exhibiting at OTC in Houston from the 1 – 4 May 2017.
