Angola: KBR to Execute Topsides Detailed Design for TOTAL’s CLOV FPSO


KBR announced  that it has been awarded a contract to execute the topsides detailed design for TOTAL’s CLOV floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

This project is the fourth development pole in Angola’s deep offshore Block 17, after Girassol, Dalia and Pazflor. Located approximately 140 kilometres from Luanda and 40 kilometres northwest of Dalia in water depths ranging from 1,100 to 1,400 metres, the CLOV development will lead to four fields – Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta – coming on stream.

In collaboration with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Eng. Co. Ltd. (DSME) – the engineering, procurement, installation and construction contractor for the project – KBR will execute the detailed engineering of topsides for the project, which is estimated to produce reserves of approximately 500 million barrels of oil. The facility will be designed to process approximately 160,000 barrels per day (BPD) of oil, 230 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of natural gas, and have a 1.8 million barrels of oil (MMBBL) storage capacity.

“KBR’s continuing relationship with DSME has given us the opportunity to be part of one of the newest major oil & gas projects in the African region,” said Roy Oelking, President, KBR Oil & Gas. “KBR is among the world’s leaders in the design of complex FPSOs, designing more units than any other engineering contractor or fabricator in the market today. We look forward to applying our extensive experience in FPSO engineering to successfully execute the topsides design for TOTAL’s CLOV development.”

KBR is a global engineering, construction and services company supporting the energy, hydrocarbon, government services, minerals, civil infrastructure, power and industrial markets.
