Riser towers deployed for second block 17 deepwater project

In June, Total started production from CLOV, its fourth large-scale deepwater development in block 17 offshore Angola. The basic concept follows the previous three models, with produced oil and gas routed via a network of subsea wells and interlinked flowlines to a spread-moored FPSO. CLOV is the second project after Girassol to connect the risers to the FPSO via hybrid riser towers designed and supplied by Subsea 7, the sole specialist in this technology.

Integrated software helps optimize FPSO design

Reducing the weight of an offshore platform's topsides is critical when considering the overall economics of a project. Designing and fabricating topsides that reduce the number of modules required – thereby reducing the weight – helps control costs and schedules during the early phase of design. To help with this task, operators are searching for the newest software to incorporate all of the topsides requirements during the designing process.
