Angola: Eni boosts Ochigufu field output

Italian oil and gas giant Eni has said it has completed the operation to ramp-up production from the Ochigufu field, in Angola’s deep offshore. Production from the field started in March.

The field has reached the production plateau of 24,000 barrels/day (b/d) less than 2 months from start-up, Eni said.

This result allows the operated production from block 15/06 to be stable above 150,000 b/d, and is in line with the goal of adding 54,000 b/d to the block’s production by 2019, Eni added on Wednesday.

Ochigufu, approximately 150 km from Soyo and 380 km from Luanda, is connected to the Sangos production system and from there to the FPSO N’Goma, in the West Hub of Block 15/06 , where Eni discovered over 3 billion barrels of oil in place and 850 million barrels of reserves.

Mpungi up next

The next start-ups in this block this year will be the UM8 reservoir in the East Hub and the Subsea Boosting System for the Mpungi field, while the Vandumbu field, in the West Hub, will start production in early 2019. These start-ups will add further 30,000 barrels of oil to the overall production from Block 15/06, which in 2019 will exceed 170,000 b/d.
