Harvest to use FPSO for Ruche field, offshore Gabon

Harvest Natural Resources has received approval for its Development and Production Plan (FDP) for Ruche field, offshore Gabon, Panoro Energy, a partner in the project, has informed.

 

The field, which includes the Ruche A (formally Ruche), Ruche B (Tortue), Ruche C (Moubenga) and Ruche D (Walt Whitman) discoveries, will be developed via a centrally located Floating Production, Storage and Offloading vessel (FPSO) with sub-sea wells tied back from each of these discoveries.

Front End Engineering Design (FEED) studies are already underway, and once completed a Final Investment Decision (FID) will be taken by the Dussafu partners. FID is scheduled to be made in early Q1-15 and based on the project schedule, production is expected to start in Q4-16.

“The FDP approval by the DGH is an important milestone for the development of Ruche.”

“The FDP approval by the DGH is an important milestone for the development of Ruche. Panoro look forward to continuing working together with our partner Harvest (Operator) and the Gabonese ministry to move forward with the development of these discoveries and to further unlock the significant pre-salt exploration potential within the Dussafu license,” Panoro said in a statement.

Panoro Energy holds a 33.33% stake in the Dussafu Marin permit. The permit is operated by Harvest Dussafu, B.V. an affiliate of Harvest Natural Resources, Inc.
