Expected processing of 160,000 b/d

The CLOV FPSO in offshore Block 17 produced its first oil in June 2014. With a processing capacity of 160,000 barrels per day, Total's fourth FPSO in Angola can store up to 1.78 million barrels of oil in a structure 305 meters long by 61 meters wide, and can accommodate a crew of up to 140 people.

CLOV Makes History in Angola

The CLOV FPSO was the first vessel of its kind to be partly built in Angola, in Porto Amboim municipality, in Cuanza Sul province, which is now one of the regions in the Angola oil industry, with two yards and is where the CLOV water treatment module was built and assembled. The christening ceremony, held in December 2013, was presided over by the First Lady of the Angolan Republic, Ana Paula dos Santos, who is also the vessel's sponsor. CLOV was the last FPSO installed in our prolific Golden Block - the deep offshore Block 17.
