Texaco has short-listed five very large crude carriers for work as a floating storage and offloading facility off Angola, shipbrokers Galbraiths says.

Texaco will inspect the vessels, all built in the mid-1970s, and invite owners' proposals for sale, time-charter or bare-boat. The selected vessel, to be employed for up to 15 years on the field, will be converted and installed off Angola this year.
