Due to the unavailability of Floating, Production System and Offioading (FPSO) design library in PETRONAS, extensive iterative process is typically being implemented in concept design and selection process. Such exercises are based on a structured approach to meet specific criterion. Determination of specific parameters with respect to scaled model testing is not always simple and straightforward as it involves experimental testing as well as cross referencing between numerical analysis. For this project, the objective is to develop a computer aided design (CAD) model of an FPSO vessel by initiating an FPSO CAD model library in order to eliminate some of the iteration in concept design and selection. Besides that, this project aims to analyze the motion behaviour of an FPSO vessel for the expected operational load condition. The focuses of this project are on acquiring details of an FPSO vessel and producing a model of the vessel using CATIA V5Rl2. Included in the scope of work is; conducting motion analysis of the FPSO vessel. The design library is expected to be achieved through literature review, calculation, part design and assembly design for CAD model development, and analysis and data generation. The result of this project is likely to give an instant value for engineers to review the dimension chosen for the FPSO as well as the motion behaviour of the vessel. In addition, it is expected that the results to be a basic assumption for the FPSO's design calculation for weight and stability analysis.
