7 Dec 2017 – Kaombo project is an ambitious ultra-deep water offshore project that Total launched in April 2014.
At depths of 1,400 to 1,950 meters, the reservoir layers lay in ultra-deep offshore waters in Angola. It aims to tap oil deposits spread across six fields in the southeastern section of Block 32 with 800 square kilometers.
Approximately 300 kilometers of subsea pipelines will connect the fields to two Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) units.
For the first time, Total is building its FPSO’s by converting crude oil carriers instead of ordering new vessels as it has been done in the Block 17.
At this meeting, Nicolas Pretet, FPSO North Manager, Total S.A. presented Kaombo Project overall presentation, challenges with a focus on the South East Asia execution scope in particular on the 2 tankers conversion in a Singapore shipyard
