The primary term of the FPSO charter is valid for seven years, with First E&P having options to extend.

The oil company will be able to extend the primary term by one extension period of 24 months and up to 6 further extension periods of 12 months. If all options are exercised the Abigail-Joseph

FPSO will stay busy with First E&P for 15 years.
