TotalEnergies to launch FPSO project in Angola
LUANDA, October 4, 2021 – TotalEnergies has decided to launch a floating production project in Angola after the company successfully appraised an exploration well on the Golfinho discovery in the Kwanza Basin, Upstream reported on Friday.
Golfinho-2 was drilled by the Maersk Voyager drillship.
The Golfinho deepwater well is one of seven discoveries made by Cobalt International on blocks 20/11 and 21/09. The assets were handed back to state-run Sonangol when the US company went bankrupt.
In 2019, TotalEnergies was appointed as operator of the two blocks. The super-major holds a 50% interest in Block 20/11, with BP holding a 30% share and Sonangol the remaining 20% stake. TotalEnergies has an 80% interest in Block 21/09 with Sonangol holding the remaining 30% stake.
