French oil major Total said it has scaled up production on the Kaombo Sul project located off the coast of Angola.
The deal would 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.
