Maersk Curlew is moored in the Curlew Field, located in the Central North Sea, 220 kilometres east of Aberdeen, Scotland. The unit is 236 metres long and operates at a water depth of 92 metres. Maersk Curlew has a daily production capacity of 45,000 barrels of oil and has a storage capacity of 560,000 barrels.
The conversion of product tanker Maersk Dorset into an FPSO was completed in 1997, making Maersk Curlew one of the first vessels to make use of gas-fired boilers. Production began in August 1997.
Maersk Curlew underwent a drydocking in 2009, in order to overhaul the mooring system, strengthen and recoat the tanks, maintain the superstructure and overhaul topsides modules, all with a view to extending the offshore life of the unit.
