Ratu Nusantara, a converted FPSO, has been constructed from a 1994-built Aframax tanker, ‘Scorpius’ which was meted out in the last quarter of 2013. In 16 months, extensive refurbishment and life extension works were performed on the tanker, transforming it into a well-outfitted FPSO. The vessel has a processing capacity of 25,000 bpd of oil, 77 mmscfd of gas, 20,000 bpd of water and a storage capacity of 630,000 barrels of processed oil.

In a vital move to expand its business, the company also plans to enter into strategic joint ventures with major oil partners.
