 "Zafiro Producer" offshore Equatorial Guinea.

Zafiro is located in the 500,000-acre Block B, 68km (42 miles) WNW of Bioko island, Equatorial Guinea, adjacent to the in-
ternational border with Nigeria. Water depths range from less than 300ft to greater than 5000ft.
The Zafiro-1 discovery well was drilled in February 1995, testing at 10,400 barrels per day. Three subsequent wells showed
the reservoir to be relatively shallow (around 5,000ft), and low pressure, with a bottom-hole shut-in pressure of 2,800psig.
The 268,191dwt VLCC (very large crude carrier) Swift was selected for conversion to the FPSO Zafiro Producer. The Swift was
built in 1973, with an overall length of 331.5m, a breadth of 56m and a depth of 26.4m. It has a draught of 20.5m fully loaded, or
8.3m ballasted. It has a storage capacity of 1.4 million barrels. The conversion was carried out at the HAM-PMB Bechtel yard, on
Pelican Island. Early reservoir evaluation indicated that a 40,000 barrels per day (b/d) rate could be expected from the planned
eight wells, requiring the installation of an 80,000b/d process plant, a 40MMSCFD gas flare capacity and storage for
1.7 MM BBL of oil.
