The field discovered with the initial exploration well in 1990. Oil production is via a steel piled jacket platform, and the export system is via FSO to a shuttle tanker. After a number of years of production, the oil rates have come off plateau with increasing amount of water cut. Field sensitivities require a new development of the Gazelle field. According to the project brief, three field developments options were proposed such as: • Refurbishment and upgrade of present system • Replacement of the oil export via the FSO and • Complete system replacement The approach used to evaluate and recommend the most suitable development concept was based on  Economics (technical costs)  Flexibility (project implementation) and  Abandonment strategies
