Thanks to its continuing good performance of the Pazflor FPSO Global Maintenance Contract, Dietsmann’s Angolan Sonangol-Dietsmann joint venture subsidiary, SONADIETS, has been awarded the Global Maintenance Contract for Clov – Pazflor’s highly sophisticated sister deep water FPSO – by Total E&P Angola.

The contract, signed in August 2012 entrusts Dietsmann with the Global Maintenance as well as the Maintenance Engineering Plan review and the Maintenance Procedure edition. The initial contract will run for 4 years and covers the mobilization and start-up phase, which is currently on-going and will continue until the second quarter of 2013, followed by the operational phase. Dietsmann is also responsible for training the national employees for their future assignments onboard.

Clov FPSO is currently under construction in South Korea and will process two different grades of oil in water depths ranging from 1100 to 1400m. It will be able to process 160,000 barrels of oil per day and store 1.78 million barrels. The onboard equipment includes 4 gas turbines rated at a record 28 MW each – enough to supply all the FPSO’s electrical needs. The FPSO will run entirely on electricity and, like the Pazflor FPSO, will incorporate the no flaring policy, which also demonstrates Dietsmann’s ability to manage complex projects in a responsible and sustainable way.

Clov is scheduled to arrive in Angola in the third quarter of 2013 so the final module integration (Water Treatment Package) can be carried out onshore in Porto Amboim. The FPSO will be installed in the Gulf of Guinea in deep-water Bloc 17 – 140 km off the shore to the north-west of Luanda – during the first quarter of 2014. The first oil is expected in May 2014.

Dietsmann has been active in Angola for more than 25 years and Total is one of Dietsmann’s important long-term clients in West Africa. Today, Dietsmann maintains many onshore and offshore production assets operated by Total around the world including in Nigeria, Gabon, Congo, Angola and Russia.

This contract consolidates Dietsmann’s position as a leading international Operation & Maintenance service company and reinforces the Company’s position in the fast-growing Angolan market.
