Fabrication & Integration onto FPSO of Modules 122 (Water Treatment) and Fabrication & Load-out of Suction Anchor Piles, Risers, Caisson Protectors & Mooring Structures (total 7,704 metric tons).
In June 2014, production began on the CLOV project. Located of the coast of Angola, it comprises of four oil fields: Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta. In all, its reserve are estimated 505 million barrels! This is the Total forth center of activity in Angola’s deep offshore Block 17.
CLOV is the first and foremost a project that showcases Total expertise in deep water offshore field development. It connects 34 subsea wells, situated in water depths of 1.100 to 1.400 meters, to a Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit. In these arduous conditions, two types of oil – one more viscous that the other – are simultaneously extracted. The FPSO, which is large as three soccer fields, has a storage capacity of 1.8 million barrels of oil.
Above all, the construction of Modules (Water Treatment Module – 122), Protectors, Suction Anchor Piles and its integration into the FPSO has been performed in PAENAL Yard, Porto Amboim, Lwanza Sul – ANGOLA.
