New FPSO compressor trains

Yinson is commissioning five centrifugal compressor trains and two screw compressor trains from MAN Energy Solutions. The two SKUEL321/CP200 screw compressor trains will be driven by electric motors and used as vapor recovery units for vessels in their Malaysian operations.

The compressor trains will be deployed on the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) asset Maria Quitéria, which is situated 80 kilometers off the coast of Anchieta, Brazil, at the Jubarte Field. The field is operated by Petrobas and lies at a water depth of approximately 1300 meters. Ready for operation at the end of 2024, the FPSO will have a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil and five million Sm3 of gas per day.


MAN’s supply comprises three radial compressor trains type RB 45 as low-pressure systems and two type RB 28 as high-pressure systems, each driven by an electric motor. The machines will be utilized for both gas exporting and gas lifting applications to maximize the flow rate and efficiency of gas production.
