Video: How Vega Oil Offshore Platform Works (Edison)
Vega oil field is located in the Sicilian Channel, 20 km south of Pozzallo (Italy). In production since 1987, Vega platform was developed with 24 wells, and located in 130 metres of water.
The platform can process 60,000 barrels of oil per day. Close to Vega platform there’s a floating storage and offloading tanker (Leonis) with a capacity of 110,000 tons to temporary store production.
The crude oil is transported from the Leonis to refineries by tankers shuttles.
