Bolloré Logistics Congo Successfully Completes Oil & Gas Logistics Operation

Bolloré Logistics Congo Successfully Completes Oil & Gas Logistics Operation
Danny Gill

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) recently selected Bolloré Logistics Congo to coordinate the regional transport of a Floating Production Unit (FPU) as part of the Moho Nord exploration project on behalf of Total E&P.

The 60,000-tonne unit—its hull measuring 250 m long, 44 m wide and 18 m deep—was floated onto a DockWise semi-submerging vessel in Ulsan, South Korea. The FPU made a 10-day stopover in Port Gentil, Gabon, where several operations were carried out.

The FPU was then towed by three tug vessels from Port Gentil to its implementation site offshore Pointe-Noire. After arrival at Pointe-Noire a month and a half after later, the delivery to HHI Congo was completed at sea in the territorial waters of the Republic of the Congo.

Bolloré Transport & Logistics Congo says that they took care of all of the administrative and customs operations related to the import of the floating production unit, the material and the crew in coordination with the various parties involved in this large-scale operation.

Benoit Mbelo, Oil & Gas Manager of Bolloré Transport & Logistics Congo, “The success of this operation complements the efforts made in recent years focusing on the quality of our services. We strived to provide our strongest expertise in adherence with the standards and rules governing this type of operation and to the satisfaction of our clients. We are especially satisfied considering the project is ahead of schedule. ‘First oil’ is expected midway through the first quarter of 2017.”
