Petrojarl Knarr is one of Teekay’s largest FPSO projects to date with a production capacity of 63,000 barrels of oil per day. Its internal turret allows the vessel to freely rotate 360 degrees and ensures it’s always facing the rough weather present in the North Sea.
In 2011, Teekay Corporation announced an agreement to provide BG Norge Limited with a FPSO unit for the Knarr field. The vessel will make its way to the North Sea field in the third quarter of 2014 and is expected to commence its 10-year charter by the end of the fourth quarter of 2014.
