Tombua-Landana project off Angola starts oil production

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Sept. 9
-- Cabinda Gulf Oil Co. Ltd. started oil production from the $3.8 billion Tombua-Landana project on Block 14 about 50 miles off Angola.

The Chevron Corp. subsidiary expects the two fields will reach peak production of 100,000 bo/d in 2011. Landana, discovered in 1998, and Tombua, discovered in 2001, contain 350 million bbl of recoverable oil, the company estimates.

The 46-well project includes a 1,554-ft compliant piled tower installed in 1,200 ft of water. The facility is designed for no produced water discharge and no routine gas flaring, CABGOC says.

The Angola Liquefied Natural Gas project, under construction at Soyo, will process the Tombua-Landana gas along with associated gas from other fields on Blocks 0, 14, 17, and 18. Completion of the Angola LNG projects is expected in 2012.

Early production from the Landana North-1 well began to the Benguela-Belize-Lobito-Tomboco compliant-piled tower in November 2006.

Operator Cabgoc holds a 31% percent interest in Block 14. Other interest owners are Sonangol P&P 20%, Eni Angola Exploration BV 20%, Total E&P Angola 20%, and GALP Energia 9%.
