Chevron starts production at Mafumeira Sul field

Chevron subsidiary, Cabinda Gulf Oil Company (CABGOC) and its partners have commenced oil and gas production from the main production facility of the Mafumeira Sul project offshore Angola. Located 24 km offshore Cabinda province and in water depth of 200 ft., the Mafumeira Sul is expected to produce 150,000 barrels of liquids and 350 million cubic feet of natural gas per day.

The Mafumeira Sul project is the second development phase of the $5.6 billion Mafumeira field located in Block 0 offshore Cabinda province, Angola. The first phase, which involved the development of the field’s northern section Mafumeira Norte, commenced production in 2009.

The Mafumeira Sul project development involves installation of new platforms, drilling of 34 production wells and 16 water-injection wells, installation of umbilical, riser and flowline (URF) facilities and 121 km of subsea pipelines.

Oil produced from the field will be exported to the existing Malongo Oil Terminal whereas the LPG will be supplied to the Sanha LPG floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
