SOFEC designed and constructed a CALM system located in 25m water depth to export diluted or refined crude oil and gas oil products to the 96,920 dwt tanker and import naphtha diluent from tankers to shore.
Petrozuata produces heavy oil from onshore Eastern Venezuela oil fields and pipelines it to a facility (Jose Terminal) on the northern coast of Venezuela, near Puerto La Cruz. In Jose, the heavy oil is diluted to export through a monobuoy installed approximately 8km offshore. The buoy design includes a two-path swivel with triple floating hoselines. Two marine pipelines (36-in. and 24-in.) connect the buoy to the onshore pump station.
