East Hub Development

The East Hub Development Project is an area located in Block 15/06 offshore Angola with nine sub-sea wells – five producers and four water injectors – at a depth of between 450m and 550m. The hydrocarbons produced are transported via a system of pipes to the FPSO Armada Olombendo, where they are treated and stored before being exported. Production in the Cabaça South East field, 350km north-west of Luanda and 130km west of Soyo, began in February 2017, five months ahead of schedule. For this reason the East Hub Development is one of seven record-breaking projects from Eni, all of which are remarkable for their rapid approval rates and times to start-up.

    The FPSO Armada Olombendo is a floating production, storage and offloading unit that operates offshore Angola as part of the East Hub Development Project. It can produce up to 80,000 barrels of oil a day and compress up to 3.4million m3 of gas. With nine sub-sea wells – five producers and four water injectors – at a depth of 450m, the FPSO enabled production to begin at the Cabaça South East field, 350km north-west of Luanda and 130km west of Soyo.
