With crude oil manufacturing on the rise – growing by greater than 580,000 barrels month-on-month ( from December 2022 to January 2023 – Angola is aiming to stabilize its output round 1.3 million barrels per day (bpd) within the subsequent three years. Accordingly, the southern African producer has a number of notable E&P initiatives which can be in progress and awaiting Remaining Funding Determination (FID) (, which is able to serve to maximise its present hydrocarbon sources, optimize present services and subsea infrastructure and allow price reductions.

Q&M Fuel Challenge

In an effort to drive upstreamgas exploration and monetization, Angola’s New Fuel Consortium (NGC) – comprising Chevron, Azule Vitality, TotalEnergies and Sonangol – reached FID on the Quiluma and Maboqueiro (Q&M) fuel venture final August, along with the Nationwide Company of Oil, Fuel and Biofuels (ANPG) ( The venture consists of two offshore wellhead platforms, an onshore fuel processing plant and a connection to the Angola LNG plant and has thus far awarded EPC contracts to Saipem for the onshore plant and Quiluma platform; JV Gruppo Antonini/Proger/Kerry Logistics for the Maboqueiro platform; and Baker Huges for the provision of turbo compressors. First fuel – deliberate for 2026 – will play a vital function in advancing Angola’s gas-focused agenda and its exploration and improvement of non-associated fuel.

Agogo Oil Area Improvement

Azule Vitality is enterprise expanded work on its ultra-deepwater Agogo Oil Area Improvement in Block 15/06, with FID set to happen this yr and preliminary works already began. The venture entails 36 new wells, together with 21 producers and 15 injectors, and a transformed FPSO vessel with a manufacturing capability of 120,000 barrels per day (bpd). Azule Vitality has already awarded $7.8 billion in contracts (, enlisting the companies of Yinson Manufacturing to function and keep the FPSO vessel; TechnipFMC to provide versatile piping; Baker Hughes to offer subsea gear and companies; Aker Options to offer dynamic and static subsea umbilicals; and Subsea 7 to move and set up risers, flowlines and subsea buildings. Upon completion, the Agogo Built-in West Hub will carry a peak manufacturing of 175,000 barrels per day by the brand new Agogo FPSO unit and the present Ngoma FPSO, which got here on-line in 2020. 

Begonia Oil Area Improvement 

Final July, TotalEnergies ( introduced a three-billion-dollar FID on the Begonia oil subject improvement in Block 17/06, which can be commissioned in late-2024 and can add about 30,000 barrels of crude oil per day to present manufacturing. Situated in water depths of as much as 750 meters, Begonia consists of 5 wells tied again to the present Pazflor FPSO in adjoining Block 17. The preliminary funding has been estimated at $850 million and 1.3 million man-hours of labor – 70% of which can be carried out in Angola.  

CLOV Part 3

Favoring short-cycle improvement initiatives, TotalEnergies and ANPG introduced plans final June to speculate $850 million to additional develop the CLOV Part 3 Challenge positioned in Block 17, which is able to develop manufacturing in present fields by 30,000 bpd. With 5 new wells, the venture represents an extension of the subsea manufacturing community and its interconnection to the present CLOV FPSO,in addition to the primary improvement to leverage standardization of subsea gear within the block, bringing vital price reductions of as much as 20%. With manufacturing anticipated for 2024, CLOV Part 3will require two million man-hours of labor, of which 1.5 million can be executed regionally in Lobito and Luanda.

Cameia-Golfinho Improvement

Certainly one of Angola’s most promising deepwater prospects is TotalEnergies’ Cameia-Golfinho deepwater improvement in Block 20/11 and Block 21/09, estimated to carry 420 million barrels of oil equal. The French main has already issued a young for a brand new 100,000-bpd FPSO facility to service the Golfinho subject – which is considered one of seven deepwater discoveries made in Blocks 20/11 and 21/09. FID is predicted in June, pending authorities approval of the sector improvement plan and startup is scheduled for 2027.

The 2023 version of the Angola Oil & Fuel (AOG) convention and exhibition ( – organized by Vitality Capital & Energy (  – will function high-level panel discussions and conferences in addition to unique networking boards showcasing funding and partnership alternatives inside the nation’s oil and fuel sector.
