CLOV FPSO Leaves South Korea. Sails to Angola

CLOV FPSO Leaves South Korea. Sails to Angola

South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding Marine and Engineering, on June 25th, held a sail away ceremony for the giant CLOV FPSO Vessel. Around 70 guests attended the event, including Mr. Jean-michel Lavergne the managing director of Total E&P Angola.

DSME achieved 14 million safe working hours on the CLOV FPSO. The unit, owned by the French oil company, Total, will be moored at the CLOV oil field, situated offshore Angola.

CLOV FPSO is 305m long, 61m wide, and will be able to reach a production plateau of 160,000 barrels of crude oil per day as well as having the capacity to store up to approximately 1.7 million barrels in
volume.

Located around 140 kilometers from Luanda and 40 kilometers northwest of Dalia in water depths ranging from 1,100 to 1,400 meters, CLOV will bring on stream four fields: Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta.

The proved and probable reserves are estimated at approximately 500 million barrels of oil.

A total of 34 subsea wells will be tied back to the CLOV Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit. The CLOV FPSO, through a unique processing and storage system, will produce two types of oil: one with a 32 to 35° API gravity from the Oligocene reservoirs (Cravo-Lirio) and the other, more viscous, with a 20 to 30° API gravity from the Miocene reservoirs (Orquidea-Violeta).

First production is expected to begin next year.
