Yinson said on Friday the 10-year MoU will involve the floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) and the floating storage and offloading (FSO) projects worldwide.

Under the MoU, Yinson shall oversee and conduct the overall project implementation. Sumitomo will focus on seeking competitive logistics and financing for any selected projects.
