The FSO Ta'Kuntah was installed as part of the Cantarell Field Development in the Gulf of Mexico. The field is located in the Bay of Campeche, offshore Mexico's Yucatan peninsula.
The FSO Ta'Kuntah is a converted ULCC tanker with a SOFEC external turret mooring system, two flexible risers connected in a lazy-S configuration between the turret and a pipeline end manifold (PLEM) on the seabed, and a unique offloading system. The offloading system allows export tankers to moor either in tandem or side-by-side, both individually and simultaneously. The FSO is designed to handle 800,000 BOPD with no allowance for downtime.
The first FSO in the Gulf of Mexico, The FSO Ta'Kuntah, achieved the first oil on August 1998. MODEC owned and operated the FSO for 15 years. The FSO was purchased by the client in September 2013.
