The ABS FPI Guide and the associated SH-FPSO software system have been in use for over 3 years in the design classification of FPSO new builds and conversion from existing tankers. This paper provides information regarding the classification process of FPSO conversion in an effort to address the needs of the client. It highlights the two typical conversion processes — the basic Ordinary Conversion and the optional SH(CS) Conversion. The paper focuses on the submittal data required and the structural review process as carried out by the classification society. It also discusses some of the technical perspectives as a result of the experience gained/lessons learned from the reviews which have been performed to date.
