Jasmim deepwater field production begins off Angola

By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 5 -- Production has begun from Jasmim field on deepwater Block 17 about 150 km northwest of Luanda off Angola. Angola's state oil company Sonangol EP is concessionaire, and Total SA subsidiary Total E&P Angola is operator of the field. Jasmim is the second of 15 discoveries on Block 17 to be brought on stream, following Girassol field in December 2001.

Production from Jasmim's eight subsea wells is being tied back 5 km to the Girassol floating production, storage, and offloading vessel.

"Jasmim's start-up will increase oil flow to the FPSO to more than 230,000 b/d and prolong the production plateau," Total said in a joint statement with Sonangol. "It is an integral part of the growth strategy for Block 17 production, which was already evidenced this year by the decision for the development of the Dalia field, slated to come on stream in the second half of 2006."

Total has a 40% participatory interest in Block 17 and is in partnership with ExxonMobil subsidiary, Esso Exploration Angola (Block 17) Ltd. 20%, BP Exploration (Angola) Ltd. 16.67%, Statoil Angola Block 17 AS 13.33%, and Norsk Hydro AS 10%.
