After undergoing a major upgrade, Bluewater’s FPSO Glas Dowr has sailed from the yard in Cape Town, South Africa under tow to its new offshore location on the Sable field. Offshore commissioning is underway.

Installation of the FPSO to its mooring system, subsea flowline and riser system will take place in the coming period. Bluewater will also be responsible for the day-to-day FPSO production operations and will support the vessel from its onshore base located in Cape Town.

The Sable field is located in the Bredasdorp basin offshore South Africa about 150 km Southwest of Mossel Bay. The field consists of two reservoirs (E-BD and E-CE) in about 100m of water with recoverable oil reserves estimated at 20 to 25 million barrels.

Field Operators are Soekor E & P (Pty) Ltd. of Parow, South Africa (integrated into the new South African National Oil and Gas Company, PetroSA (Pty) Ltd. and partners Pioneer Natural Resources South Africa (Pty) Limited and Petroleum Limited.
