(54)    Title
Sea vessel docking station
(57)    Abstract

A system and method in which a buoyant central docking station captures, lifts and couples one or more other sea vessels is disclosed, wherein a flexible,

modularized production system is quickly realized on a cost effective basis. The capabilities of a number of older, less expensive, readily available vessels are combined to achieve an effective FPSO substitute that allows lower producing fields to be explored and produced in a profitable manner. The time

horizon between initiation and consummation of field operations is reduced, and older vessels that might otherwise be scrapped or retired are again made
