Offshore Structures: CLOV FPSO Project


The French oil & gas giant “Total” is the major share operator of the CLOV project which is an integrated development of a four-field cluster on the northwest sector of Angola's offshore Block 17. Drilling will begin in 2012 and the first oil recovery is expected in 2014.


Located approximately 140 kilometres from Luanda and 40 kilometres northwest of Dalia in water depths ranging from 1,100 to 1,400 metres, the CLOV development will lead to the four fields - Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta – coming on stream. The proved and probable reserves are estimated at approximately 500 million barrels of oil. A total of 34 subsea wells will be tied back to the CLOV Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) unit, which will have a processing capacity of 160,000 barrels of oil per day and a storage capacity of approximately 1.8 million barrels.

CLOV will accommodate 240 POB and was built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co (DSME), Korea as H6049.
