Italian oil and gas company Eni has started oil production from its operated Agogo field, located offshore Angola, only nine months after its discovery.
Eni announced “a major oil discovery” in Block 15/06, in the Agogo exploration prospect, in Angola’s deep water in March 2019. Eni operates two FPSOs in Block 15/06, the N’Goma in West Hub and Olombendo in East Hub.
The Agogo-1 NFW well, which has led to the discovery, is located approximately 180 kilometers off the coast and about 20 kilometers west from the N’Goma FPSO. The well was drilled by the Poseidon drillship in a water depth of 1636 meters and reached a total depth of 4450 meters.
