FPSO LEOPOLD SEDAR SENGHOR EN ROUTE TO SENEGAL
Woodside Energy has achieved another significant step forward for the Sangomar Project with the sail away from Singapore of the Léopold Sédar Senghor Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility. The FPSO, named after Senegal’s first president, is travelling 12,000 nautical miles from Singapore to its final destination, approximately 100 kilometres offshore Dakar, Senegal. Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill highlighted the significance of the Sangomar Field Development Phase 1 and praised the level of collaboration among multiple participants that made the successful sail away possible.
The Sangomar Field Development Phase 1 includes a stand-alone FPSO with subsea infrastructure and an expected production capacity of approximately 100,000 barrels/day. The FPSO was previously a Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC) and was converted by MODEC into a fit for purpose FPSO suitable for the Sangomar Field in accordance with agreed specifications under an FPSO purchase contract entered into by MODEC and Woodside.
