Esso Exploration Angola begins production

Esso Exploration Angola has commenced production from the Kizomba Satellites Phase I project located in Block 15, offshore Angola.

The initial phase of the project is expected to produce 100,000 barrels of oil each day and recover approximately 250 million barrels from the Mavacola and Clochas fields, located in water depths of approximately 4,500ft.

“The company has invested a total of $1.5bn in the Kizomba Satellites development.”Neil Duffin, ExxonMobil Development Company president, said the project combines the company’s project management expertise with local suppliers and businesses to maximise the value of Angola’s significant petroleum resources.

“The Kizomba Satellites project was completed ahead of schedule and with industry-leading safety performance, as was the case with previous Block 15 developments,” said Duffin.
