Welcome to the Seillean website.
Launched 1987, the Seillean was described as "....the most sophisticated merchant vessel in the World", categorised as a SWOPS vessel which stood for "Single-well oil-production system"
Harland and Wolff was the first company in the world to design and construct a fully dynamically positioned floating production, storage and transport vessel for marginal oilfield development - the Seillean, for BP Exploration. Designed and built in the late 1980's, Seillean has been fully operational since the beginning of 1990.
The Seillean was originally developed by BP in the mid-late 1980's to perform production, storage and transportation operations on the various marginal field developments BP had in their North Sea portfolio at that time. Their principal reasoning for selecting a dynamically positioned FPSO was to provide a production vessel with the level of flexibility and self-sufficiency deemed suitable for operating at different water depth locations for relatively short durations.
