West Hub Development

The West Hub Development Project includes the development of the Sangos, Cinguvu, Mpungi, Mpungi North, Ochigufu and Vandumbu fields, at water depths ranging from 1,000 to 1,500 metres. The wells are connected to the Sangos production system and from there to the N'Goma FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading Unit). In December 2014, production started at the West Hub Development project in Block 15/06 (Eni 36,84%, Operator), the first project in production operated by Eni in Angola. The development of the project took place in just 44 months from the declaration of a commercial discovery and is a top industry result for deepwater developments. For this reason the West 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. In May 2018 Eni has completed the ramp-up of the Ochigufu field reaching the production plateau of 24,000 barrels/day (b/d) less than 2 months from start-up. This result allows the operated production from block 15/06 to be stable above 150,000 b/d, and is in line with the goal of adding 54,000 b/d to the block’s production by 2019. The wells in the Vandumbu field, which will be connected to the FPSO, will start production in early 2019.
