Total: Congo’s Moho Nord project on stream

PARIS, March 15, 2017 – Total has commenced production from the Moho Nord project offshore Republic of Congo, the French major announced on Wednesday.

The deepwater venture 75 kilometres off Pointe-Noire uses 34 wells, tied back to the Likouf floating production unit. There, the oil is processed before transport to the onshore Djeno terminal via a Total-operated pipeline.


The project also features a newly installed tension leg platform, Total’s first on the African continent. Moho Nord has an output capacity of 100,000 boepd.

“Moho Nord is the biggest oil development to date in the Republic of the Congo. A showcase for Total’s deep offshore operational excellence, it consolidates our leading position in Africa,” the company’s present for exploration and production, Arnaud Breuillac, said in a press release.

Moho Nord is operated by Total on a 53.5% stake. Chevron’s local subsidiary holds 31.5%, while Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo maintains the remaining 15%.
