LR Verifies BP FPSO Glen Lyon

The Glen Lyon floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, BP’s newest North Sea asset, was awarded full-term classification certificates for service in the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, 175 km west of Shetland. 
 
Conditions west of Shetland are among the most severe in the UK and Glen Lyon must be capable of operating in extreme weather. Classification means the Glen Lyon FPSO has been verified for operation to the highest levels of safety and performance by LR.
 
Glen Lyon is the world’s largest harsh water FPSO and formed part of BP’s multi-billion-pound Quad 204 project. BP announced first oil from the Glen Lyon on 22 May. Production is expected to ramp up in the coming months, eventually reaching up to 130,000 barrels of oil per day.
 
LR has worked with BP on the Glen Lyon project since 2011; through FEED, detailed design, construction and commissioning. It has been a long-term engagement involving hundreds of LR staff from more than 30 offices across the UK, Europe, Asia and the Americas.
