CLOV development offshore Angola. TotalEnergies, together with the Angolan National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG), started production of CLOV Phase 2, a project connected to the existing CLOV floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit. The tie-back project is expected to reach production of 40,000 boe/d in mid-2022. Comprising four oil fields (Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea, and Violeta), CLOV is the fourth TotalEnergies-operated production hub in Block 17 in the Angolan deep offshore. It came on stream in 2014 ( OGJ Online, June 12, 2014 ). Phase 2—which lies about 140 km from the Angolan coast in water depths of 1,100-1400 m—was launched in 2018 and contains resources estimated at 55 MMboe. The four oil fields are developed simultaneously, and their production is fed into a single all-electric FPSO. They are grouped into two secondary production hubs: Cravo-Lirio, which only contains Oligocene oil, and Orquidea-Violeta, which produces mixed Oligocene […]
