This case study presentation shows a Dynamic Simulation Study (DSS) carried out for the Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) designed and operated by Yinson Production for the Eni’s OCTP development project in Ghana. The Aspen HYSYS Dynamics model was extensively used to run about 15 transient conditions (Start-up, Emergency Shutdown, Blocked inlet/outlet, load sharing, ramp-up, etc.) to verify the sizing, process layout, control layout, operating procedures, etc. During a second project stage, the detailed model was re-used to create a Lifecycle Direct-Connect Operator Training Simulator (OTS) by connecting it with the Integrated Control and Safety System (ICSS).
