FSO PTSC Bien Dong 01 - Hai Thach Condensate

A. Introduction

BIEN DONG PETROLEUM OPERATING COMPANY (BIEN DONG POC) is Operator of Block 05.2& 05.3, and PTSC PPS operates the FSO PTSC BIENDONG 01 on BD POC’s behalf.
Block 05.2 & 05.3 located in the Nam Con Son Basin offshore Vietnam, 184 Miles (340 Kms) south-east of Vung Tau province. The Nam Con Son Basin has several important fields with production from Dai Hung Condensate Field, and Lan Tay Gas Field, as well as further gas and condensate Rong Doi.
Bien Dong development is comprised of the following:
A Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FSO) system.
A Production and Quarter Platform (PQP).
The Well Head Platforms (WHP-HT and WHP-MT)
A Subsea Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM)
Subsea electrical power cables and control system
Infield flowlines
Associated gas will be separated on the PQP. The separated gas will be delivered to the Nam Con Son pipeline through the sub-sea pipeline, and Condensate will be piped through the infield and flexible risers to the FSO and to be stored and offload from the FSO. The FSO located approximately 2,2km NW from the PQP.

Terminal Limits

The condensate field facilities are located in the following coordinates (in WGS 84) :
WHP-MT 1 07° 55’46.68” N 108° 47’ 31.02” E
WHP-HT 1 08° 02’34.52” N 108° 55’ 40.69” E
PQP-HT 08° 02’38.92” N 108° 55’ 40.96” E
FSO-PTSC BIENDONG 01 08° 03’ 02.31 N 108° 54’ 30.61” E

Safety Zones : There are Safety Zones established:
1/ A prohibited area has been established bounded within a 500 meter radius from a line joining the above positions.
2/ 04 areas formed by extending 500m from outer edges of PQP/WHPs and FSO. Vessels shall not enter these areas without a Mooring Master on board.

Restricted Zones:
There are 04 Restricted Zones with radius of 02 NM surrounding PQP/WHPs and FSO. Within a restricted zone, anchoring of vessels is strictly prohibited.

Pilot embarking/disembarking area, Anchorage area:
In case of weather permitting, the vessel (s) is requested to call to below position for embarking/disembarking Pilot and lifting group:
Latitude: 08° 05’ 10” N
Longitude: 108° 52’ 22” E

Anchorage Area:
For tankers requesting to anchor, the recommended area is located 03 NM north-west of the FSO PTSC BIENDONG01 and is centered on the following position:
Latitude: 08° 05’ 10” N
Longitude: 108° 52’ 22” E

This position represents the center of a circle with a radius of 1 nautical mile.

Holding/anchoring ground within this predetermined area is considered good.

However, due to the sea water depth around the area is approximately 130 m, the weather condition and safety precautions, therefore, should be considered very carefully by Master of export tanker whenever make the decision on bringing his vessel to anchor.
