Mellitah Oil Gaza FSO
The Bouri field is located 120 km northwest of Tripoli, Libya and consists of a central processing platform and a satellite platform in water depths of 170 m. A new-build FSO (Gaza) was required to replace the existing Sloug FSO, which has been operating in place at the Bouri field since 1988. The Gaza FSO is an ultra-large vessel with a length of 324 m and a width of 51 m. It is equivalent to approximately 3.5 football stadiums and has the capacity of 1.5 million barrels of crude oil storage. The hull size of the FSO is approximately 210,000 DWT.
