Chevron Names FPSO Vessel

August 19, 1999

Chevron's Floating Production Storage and Offloading Vessel (FPSO) Kuito was officially named at a ceremony in Singapore recently. Named after the field discovered by Chevron in 1997, Kuito is an intricate portion of plans for the first development of Block 14, a 1,560 sq. mile area located next to another Chevron operated concession, Block 0. After commissioning, Kuito will depart for the western coast of Africa where it will be spread moored in water depths of approximately 1,260 ft. above the Kuito oil field - 50 miles offshore Angola. In compliance with the highest environmental and safety standards, Kuito has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil per day and can store in excess of 1.4 million barrels.
