On Feb. 13, Hyundai Heavy Industries officials, including its chairman Choi Kil-seon, held a ceremony to launch the world’s largest cylindrical floating production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) platform, which can store one million barrels of crude oil per day. 

Hyundai Heavy Industries finished the construction of the FPSO just 3 years and 8 months after it was ordered by ENI Norge AS of Norway. It is a 59,000 ton cylindrical floater, measuring 112 meters in diameter and 75 meters in height. 

The FPSO will be installed in the Goliat offshore field, 85 km northwest of Hammerfest in northern Norway, and will produce crude oil in the future.
