ExxonMobil’s subsidiary, Esso Exploration Angola Ltd., started production from the Kizomba Satellites Phase 1 project offshore Angola.
The Kizomba Satellites initial phase is expected to ultimately produce 100,000 barrels per day (b/d), and recover a total of approximately 250 million barrels from the Mavacola and Clochas fields, located 95 miles off the coast of Angola in water depths of approximately 1,372 m (4,500 ft).
“This project combines ExxonMobil’s project management expertise with local suppliers and businesses to maximize the value of Angola’s significant petroleum resources,” said Neil Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development Co. “The Kizomba Satellites project was completed ahead of schedule and with industry-leading safety performance, as was the case with previous Block 15 developments.”
Phase 1 of the project will develop 18 wells with subsea tiebacks to the existing Kizomba A and B floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, optimizing the capabilities of on-block facilities to increase current production levels without requiring an additional FPSO vessel.
