MODEC has entered into an agreement with Woodside Energy to supply a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Sangomar (formerly SNE) Field Development phase one project located in the Sangomar Offshore and Sangomar Offshore Deep oil blocks offshore Senegal.

MODEC was awarded a front end engineering design (FEED) contract of the FPSO in February 2019 and has now been awarded the FPSO purchase contract further to final investment decision (FID) on the Sangomar Field Development which was made in January 2020.

The FPSO will be deployed at the Sangomar field located approximately 100 kilometres south of Dakar, Senegal. The Sangomar Field Development is expected to be Senegal’s first offshore oil development.

Scheduled for delivery in early 2023, the FPSO will be permanently moored at a water depth of approximately 780 metres. It will be capable of processing 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day, 3.6 million cubic metres of gas per day, 145,000 barrels of water injection per day, and will have minimum storage capacity of 1,300,000 barrels of crude oil.
