Total reaches oil production milestone offshore Angola

French oil company Total has said today it has achieved the significant milestone of producing a cumulative two billion barrels from its operated deep offshore Block 17 located 150 km off the coast of Angola.

With the recent start up of CLOV, Block 17 has become Total’s most prolific site with production of over 700,000 barrels per day, the company has revealed.

The Group, which celebrated its 60th anniversary in Angola in 2013, operates four Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) units on the major production zones of the block: Girassol, Dalia, Pazflor and CLOV.

“Block 17 is a global benchmark in the deep offshore and represents a unique industrial adventure, with 15 discoveries and a very high level of production. Thanks to the commitment of our teams and a number of technological world firsts over the past 14 years, the production of Block 17 has continuously ramped up,”outlined Arnaud Breuillac, President, Exploration & Production.

“This milestone is a symbol of our strong position in the deep offshore sector. The Group is already the leading deep offshore operator in West Africa and is using this expertise to grow in other regions: in Brazil through its participation in the Libra field as well as in the United Kingdom with the coming start up of the Laggan-Tormore project in the deep offshore.”
