MOBILE OFFSHORE PRODUCTION UNIT (MOPU)

The Mobile Offshore Production Unit (MOPU) is a movable platform used in oil production. The design is most applicable to smaller offshore fields where production of Crude oil is c. 10,000-20,000 barrels per day. There is currently a favourable market for acquiring surplus drilling units for conversion to MOPUs; this can prove effective where a shorter cycle from initial investment to first production is a top priority.
