An FPSO is a floating, production, storage and offloading unit, often in the form of a converted tanker ship.

The FPSO is a part of the Greater Enfield project, with a field located 60 kilometers off Exmouth in Western Australia. The reserves in the area will be produced via a 31 kilometer subsea tie-back to Ngujima-Yin, located over the Vincent oil field.
