Angola: ANPG and Partners Start Production in Block 0 Nsinga Field

Luanda — The National Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANPG), Chevron, Sonangol, Total and Eni announced Tuesday that they have started production at the Nsinga oil field, located in area A of the concession of Block 0, off the coast of Malongo, in Cabinda.

According to an ANPG press release sent to Angop, Nsinga is the first oil field in the Block 0 concession to start production after the approval of the Presidential Legislative Decree no. 6/18, of May 18, which governs incentives for the development of marginal fields. The Nsinga oil field is being developed through a phased intervention, in which the first wells are drilled from an existing platform. Phase 1, which starts production Tuesday, is composed of four producing wells, drilled in a directional manner, which will provide additional information for the design of specific development alternatives in Phase 2. The Nsinga field wells were developed based on a new completion technology, which allows the production of the reservoir fluids and reduces sand production. For the Chairperson of ANPG's Board of Directors, Paulino Jerónimo, "the start of production in this field represents the materialization of the efforts made in the last two years by the Angolan Government, with the active contribution of the national concessionaire.
