Exploration & Production
Eni started production in the Block 15/06 (Eni operator with a 36.84% interest) at the end of 2014 with the West Hub Development Project that represents the first Eni-operated producing project in the Country. The development program plans to hook up the Block’s discoveries to the N’Goma FPSO in order to support production plateau. In 2016, Production started up at the M’Pungi and M’Pungi North fields and the related production ramp-up allowed to achieve an overall production of approximately 81 kbbl/d (approximately 28 kbbl/d net to Eni). According to the project further 5 fields will be put into production with completion expected in 2019. The development plan includes water and gas injection wells in line with the zero flaring policy.
In February 2017, production start-up was achieved at the East Hub project, five months earlier than scheduled and with a timeto-market among the best in the industry, by means of the linkage of Cabaça South East field to the FPSO Armada Olombendo. In the Block 15/06, with the completion of the East Hub project, production derived from five fields. Management plans to put into production two additions discoveries by the end of 2018.
Early production phase started up at the Mafumeira Sul project in the Block 0 (Eni’s interest 9.8%). Development activities progressed, with the completion expected during 2017 and a peak production of 100 kboe/d.
During the year, Eni signed the Malembo Gas Supply Agreement with the national oil company Sonagas to supply associated gas deriving from production of the Block 0 to the power plant in the Malongo area.
Other development activities concerned:
- the completion of the Congo River Crossing project to supply gas production of Block 0 and 14 (Eni’s interest 20%) to Angola LNG liquefaction plant (Eni’s interest 13.6%) which started up in April 2016 with an average production of 6 kboe/d net to Eni;
- development program of the Kizomba satellites Phase 2 (Eni’s interest 20%) which will be started up leveraging on the production and treatment facilities in the area.
