TECHNOLOGY THAT SAFEGUARDS
The Moho Nord facilities were designed, from the
beginning, to prevent routine flaring. There is no
permanent flame. Instead, an innovative automatic
system can ignite the flare if needed. This is a
first for the Republic of Congo. Associated gas is
reinjected or used to fuel power generation.
Reinjecting produced water
Another Total first is that all produced water is
reinjected into Moho Nord’s reservoirs. This
offers two benefits: It maintains the pressure in
the reservoir to optimize oil recovery, while it also
prevents the discharge of any produced water into
the sea—even if the water has been treated.
The smallest environmental footprint
The FPU Likouf is the biggest deepwater-production
FPU in the Republic of Congo, but boasts the
smallest environmental footprint. Highly energy
efficient, it incorporates multiple technologies to
limit the emission of greenhouse gases, such as a
central management system for all energy needs,
a venting recovery unit and a heat-recovery system
for the exhaust produced by the turbine generators.
