Two System 800xA Simulators have helped Statoil overcome the challenges of recovering and processing some of the heaviest and most challenging crude oil on the planet.
One of the world’s largest production vessels
Peregrino is Statoil’s largest oil project outside of Norway. The field lies about 85 km off the coast of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and around 2,300 meters below the seabed. It is one of the largest producing oil fields in the region.
At the heart of the field’s production system is the Peregrino floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. It is one of the biggest and most technologically advanced ships ever built.
