ExxonMobil and its partners said that they will further invest in Block 15 offshore Angola to increase production as part of an agreement with Angola’s recently established National Agency for Petroleum, Gas and Biofuels. As part of the agreement, Sonangol, Angola’s state oil company, will receive a 10 percent equity interest. Mr Hunter Farris, senior vice president of ExxonMobil Upstream Oil & Gas Company, said htat “This renewed collaboration will enable Angola to optimize recovery and add production from mature fields.”

As operator, ExxonMobil will complete a multi year drilling program in the block and install new infrastructure technology to increase capacity of existing subsea flow lines. The project will generate about 1,000 local jobs during the execution phase, and will produce approximately 40,000 additional barrels of oil per day once online.

Changes to the production sharing agreement extend operations through 2032 and bring Sonangol into the Block 15 partnership with a 10 percent interest. Under the agreement, Esso Angola’s interest is 36 percent, BP Exploration’s share is 24 percent, ENI Angola Exploration’s interest is 18 percent and Equinor Angola’s share is 12 percent.
