Watch the world-record transport of the 80,500 ton Floating Production Unit (FPU) Likouf onboard the Dockwise Vanguard, from South Korea to Gabon.
The facility is used for Total’s offshore Congo development.
The Moho Nord deep offshore project, is located 75 kilometers offshore Pointe-Noire in the Republic of the Congo.
It has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day, and includes 34 wells tied back to a new tension leg platform, the first for Total in Africa, and to Likouf, a new floating production unit.
The oil is processed on Likouf and then exported by pipeline to the Djeno onshore terminal, also operated by Total.
The facilities are designed to minimize their environmental footprint. There will be no routine flaring and the all-electric design improves energy efficiency by optimizing the amount of power needed to run the installations. All the produced water will be reinjected into the reservoir.
Total has been operating for 50 years in the region and is responsible for nearly half of the country’s domestic production.
In 2016, Total’s equity share of production averaged 89,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
