Eni started production from the Cabaça North development project in Block 15/06 offshore Angola via the Armada Olombendo FPSO.
The development, with an expected peak production rate of 15,000 b/d of oil, will increase and sustain the plateau of the Armada Olombendo, a zero-discharge, zero-process flaring FPSO with an overall capacity of 100,000 b/d, the operator said in a release Sept. 24.
This is the second start-up by Eni Angola this year following Cuica Early Production achieved in July. A third start-up is expected within the next few months, with the Ndungu Early Production in the western area of Block 15/06.
Eni Angola operates Block 15/06 with 36.84% interest. Partners are Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção (36.84%) and SSI Fifteen Ltd. (26.32%).
