building the giant agbami FPSO vessel
The giant Agbami Field is one of the largest deepwater oil offshore discoveries in Nigeria. The cornerstone of the development is one of the world's largest floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, shown here as it was towed to the site. Key components of the FPSO were fabricated in Nigeria, setting a benchmark for using Nigerian goods, labor and services. Agbami represents not only a new source of energy supply, but also provides employment and economic opportunities for Nigeria.
