Offshore staff

PARIS – Total says the FPSO for its CLOV project in Angola’s deepwater block 17 has reached Porto Amboim in Angola.

This followed a 75-day, 18,520-km (11,508-mi) voyage from the DSME yard in South Korea.

Hull and riser protectors and the M122 water treatment module – fabricated locally – will be installed on the 305-m (1,000-ft) long, 118,000-ton vessel.

Total estimates CLOV’s oil reserves at more than 500 MMbbl. Startup is scheduled for 2Q 2014.

Offshore Gabon, drilling is under way on Total’s Anguille redevelopment project’s Phase 3 wells from the new AGMN platform, using the Setty rig. Five production wells and one injector are now in service. An additional producer is being drilled and one more is being hooked up.

Total adds that the Constellation 2 rig has drilled two new wells on the ANE platform, both of which are onstream.
