Gallery: Quad 204 ‘Glen Lyon’ FPSO under construction in South Korea

These images show the Glen Lyon FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) vessel under construction in South Korea. The state-of-the-art FPSO will eventually make a journey across the world to work on the £3billion Quad 204 redevelopment project of the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, west of Shetland. Glen Lyon replaces the Schiehallion FPSO, which started producing oil in 1998 and continued doing so for 15 years until operations were suspended for Quad204 subsea work.
