Angola Block 17
Landmark: Project is for Total Exploration and Production in Angola and follows the Girassol/Jasmim/Rosa, and Pazflor projects previously awarded.
The CLOV development consists of four fields: Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta, located offshore Angola in Block 17. A total of 36 wells will be tied-back to the CLOV FPSO, which will have a processing capacity of 160,000 bopd at plateau and a storage capacity of 1.78 million barrels. The FPSO will have the ability to handle two types of oil – light oil with a API gravity between 32 to 35 degree from Oligocene reservoirs, and a 20 to 30 degree API gravity oil from Miocene reservoirs. Both oil streams will be combined and processed in one single train before storage.
The project allows FMC Technologies to continue to implement its Angola local content strategy and to further develop its personnel and facilities in Angola.
