A third start-up is expected within the next few months, with the Ndungu Early Production in the Western area of Block 15/06.

An oil rig of Italian energy giant ENI. In addition, ENI has stakes in the non-operated Blocks 0 (Cabinda), 3/05, 3/05A, 14, 14 K/A-IMI, 15 and in the Angola LNG. This is the second start-up achieved by ENI Angola in 2021, after the Cuica Early Production achieved in July. The Cabaca North development, with an expected peak production rate in the range of 15 kbopd, will increase and sustain the plateau of the Armada Olombendo, a zero-discharge, zero-process flaring FPSO with an overall capacity of 100 kbopd, ENI said.

Italian energy giant ENI said on September 24 the company started production from Cabaca North development project, in Block 15/06 of the Angolan deep offshore, via the Armada Olombendo Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel. The start-up of Cabaca North is yet another example of how ENI Angola, in full cooperation with ANPG and partners, keeps creating value on Block 15/06 through its Infrastructure-Led Exploration strategy, generating a pipeline of fast-track subsea tie-backs, thus maximizing the utilization of existing facilities in the area in a sustainable manner, ENI said. Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção (36.84%) and SSI Fifteen Limited (26.32%) compose the rest of the Joint Venture. Block 15/06 is operated by ENI Angola with a 36.84% share.
