TotalEnergies announces start-up of CLOV Phase 2 project in Angola

Angola TotalEnergiesTotalEnergies, operator of Block 17 in Angola, together with the Angolan National Oil, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG), has announced the start of production of CLOV Phase 2, a project connected to the existing CLOV FPSO

This tie-back project will reach a production of 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day in mid-2022.

Launched in 2018, this project was carried out within budget and planned execution duration, despite the challenges associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. Situated about 140 km from the Angolan coast, in water depths from 1,100 to 1,400 metres, the CLOV Phase 2 resources are estimated at around 55 mmbbl of oil equivalent.

“The start of the production of CLOV Phase 2, a few months after Zinia Phase 2, demonstrates our continuous efforts to ensure a sustainable output on Block 17. This project fits within the company’s strategy to focus its upstream investments on low-cost projects which contribute to lower the average GHG emissions intensity of its production,” said Henri-Max Ndong-Nzue, senior vice-president Africa, exploration and production at TotalEnergies.

Belarmino Chitangueleca, acting president of the ANPG, commented, “CLOV Phase 2 start-up comes at the right time to sustain the national oil production. We value the performance of the operator and the contractor group to keep executing projects despite this crisis period.”
