French oil major Total said on Tuesday it had scaled up production on the Kaombo Sul project located off the coast of Angola, in a deal that should lift Total’s general production capacities.
Arnaud Breuillac, President of Exploration & Production at Total, said in Paris that Kaombo Sul will add 115,000 barrels of oil per day (bopd) to its production capacities.
Breuillac said in a statement that the 115,000 barrels would bring the overall production capacity to 230,000 bopd, equivalent to 15 per cent of the country’s production.
“Its start-up will contribute to the group’s cash flow and production growth in 2019 and beyond,” Breuillac said. (Reuters/NAN)
