Satellite production comes on stream at Kizomba, offshore Angola

The Kizomba Satellites Phase 2 project in Block 15 offshore Angola has come on stream. Block 15 is operated by Esso Angola (with a 40% interest). Other partners include Statoil (13.33% interest), BP (26.67% interest), and Eni (20% interest). Sonangol is the concessionaire.

Tove Stuhr Sjøblom, Statoil senior vice president for sub-Saharan Africa, said the satellite production at Kizomba adds “profitable barrels” to its 220,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day production in Angola, a region that comes in second in oil production for the company behind Norway. “

Through the subsea infrastructure development of the Kakocha, Bavuca, and Mondo South fields tied back to the existing Kizomba B and Mondo floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, total daily production of Block 15 is expected to increase to 350,000 barrels of oil per day.

Recoverable reserves from the Kizomba Satellites Phase 2 fields are estimated at 190 million barrels of oil.

Kizomba Satellite Phase 2 is located approximately 150 kilometers off the coast of Angola in water depths around 1,350 meters.
