Oil and gas lifecycle

Yinson's services contribute to the 'development' and 'production' phases of the offshore oil and gas field lifecycle.
  • Seismic Survey

    Geological and geophysical mapping via seismic survey

  • Exploration and Appraisal

    Wildcat wells drilled to assess the potential discovery of oil and gas

  • Development

    Pre-FEED and FEED studies
    Fabrication and procurement

  • Production

    Extraction, processing and export of hydrocarbons

  • Decommissioning

    Decommissioning of end-of-field infrastructure

In the ‘development’ phase, a series of plans are developed to outline how the field can be optimised, while in the ‘production’ phase, hydrocarbons are produced and processed. An FPSO vessel is designed to receive and process hydrocarbons, then store it until it can be offloaded. Essentially, Yinson provides working capital to oil producers and field operators – we are the de facto production arm of these companies.

What is an FPSO?

  • Used for the processing, storage and offloading of hydrocarbons.
  • Purpose-built to suit designated oil field requirements.
  • Can either be converted from an existing oil tanker or newly-built.
  • Popular for its mobility. An FPSO can be refurbished, relocated and reused for production in another field.

How does an FPSO work?


  • Short to medium term (1 to 5 years)
    • Continue to build a sustainable pipeline of conversion and redeployment projects, including through mergers and acquisitions
    • Proactively drive ESG initiatives to fulfil Group goal of reducing carbon intensity by 30% by 2030
    • Invest in asset lifecycle management via proactive digitalisation strategy
    • Enhance learning, leadership, safety and corporate culture
  • Long term (6 to 10 years)
    • Continuous development of our asset portfolio, creating a strong order book with stable cash flows
    • Optimise capital structure and expand liquidity pool to capture market opportunities
    • Continuously evaluate effectiveness of supply chain and project execution philosophy
