FPSO Léopold Sédar Senghor

The FPSO will be deployed at the Sangomar (formerly SNE) field located approximately 100 km south of Dakar, Senegal. The Sangomar Field Development is expected to be Senegal's first offshore oil development.

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 vessel will be permanently moored at a water depth of approximately 780 m by an External Turret mooring system to be supplied by SOFEC, Inc., a MODEC group company.

The FPSO will be capable of processing 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day, 130 million standard cubic feet 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.
