Kaombo project

Kaombo, currently the biggest deep offshore development in Angola, is located some 260 kilometers off the coast of Luanda, the capital of the country.

The field was brought online through the FPSO Kaombo Norte which will produce an estimated 115,000 barrels of oil per day. The second FPSO, the Kaombo Sul, is expected to start up next year.

Overall production of the project will reach an estimated 230,000 barrels of oil per day at peak, and the associated gas will be exported to the Angola LNG plant. A total of 59 wells will be connected to the two FPSOs.
