Woodside Energy expects first production from Sangomar field, offshore Senegal, in mid-2024 after having received the Léopold Sédar Senghor floating, production, storage, and offloading (FPSO) vessel. 

The FPSO arrived from Singapore to its final destination about 100 km offshore Dakar, the operator said in a release Feb. 13. The next step in the project involves commissioning the FPSO and hooking up the 23 production, gas, and water injection wells that make up Sangomar Field Development Phase 1.

The FPSO will be capable of processing 100,000 b/d of crude oil and 145,000 b/d of water injection and has 1.3 million bbl minimum storage capacity (OGJ Online, Jan. 2, 2024).

Expected production capacity of Phase 1 is about 100,000 b/d.

Woodside operates the Sangomar exploitation development area with 82% interest. Petrosen holds the remaining 18%.
