An FPSO Carrier is better-known as Floating Production Storage and Offloading unit. It's a kind of floating tank system that can be employed in offshore oil and gas businesses to keep and obtain the hydrocarbons from nearby subsea templates or platforms. The hydrocarbons, once gathered, are processed and saved until they are offloaded into tankers or occasionally carried via a pipe.

Shell Castelon is known to be the first oil FPSO built in Spain and nowadays more than 200 FPSO ships are engaged in the world oil trade. The new technology in the FPSO industry is going rapidly forward which can be seen on the Sanha LPG FPSO ship, operating offshore Angola, which is the first vessel to be using incorporated complete onboard LPG processing and export facilities and is able to store more than 135,000 cubic meters of liquefied petroleum gas while awaiting export tankers for offloading.

As the cost of laying seabed pipelines is huge in the regions of deep water, Floating Production Storage and Offloading carriers are well suited for these regions. The use of FPSO is also appreciated in the smaller oil fields which get exhausted after certain periods of time and does not require building an oil platform.
