Oil flows from Eni's Cinguvu field, offshore Angola

Eni has kicked off production from its Cinguvu offshore oil field, from the West Hub Development Project in Block 15/06 in the Angolan Deep Offshore. The field is located around 350 kilometers northwest of Luanda and 130 kilometres west of Soyo.

The West Hub Development Project encompasses the development of Sangos, Cinguvu, Mpungi, Mpungi North and Vandumbu fields in a water depth ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 meters. The wells are arranged in clusters and connected to the FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit) N’Goma, which has a treatment capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil per day.

The two fields on stream, Sangos and Cinguvu, are currently producing about 60,000 barrels of oil per day (18,000 bopd Eni’s equity) through the N’Goma FPSO. Production is envisaged to ramp up to 100,000 barrels of oil per day in the last quarter of 2015 with the start-up of the third field, Mpungi, which will also be connected to N’Goma FPSO.

“This is indeed another important step within  the innovative hub-building strategy at the base of our success in Block 15-06 in Angola. A second field, Cinguvu, came on stream on time and on budget, after Sangos in November 2014, confirming our excellent track record in terms of efficiency, technology and innovation,” CEO Claudio Descalzi said.

Eni is operator of Block 15/06 with a 35% stake and Sonangol EP is the Concessionaire. The other partners of the joint venture are Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção (35%), SSI Fifteen Limited (25%) and Falcon Oil Holding Angola SA (5%).
