The hunt for a floating production, storage and offloading vessel for TotalEnergies’ Cameia-Golfinho project in Angola is nearing the finish line.

Upstream understands that three contactor groups vying to provide the supermajor with a converted FPSO have each submitted their completed front-end engineering and design studies to the operator, which will assess them and then ask for commercial offers.

Cameia-Golfinho is expected to be the first of a number of major new Angolan projects due to be sanctioned in 2022, triggered by an improved fiscal regime as Luanda looks to address declining oil and gas production.
