Production begins in Mpungi field offshore Angola
During the first quarter of this year, the project is expected to produce about 100,000 barrels of oil each day.
“The third start-up milestone of the West Hub Development project has been achieved both on budget and on schedule," Claudio Descalzi, Eni CEO, said. "This achievement reflects our ability to deliver major projects and confirms our excellent track record in terms of efficiency, technology and innovation.”
Eni has been exploring sites in Angola since 1980 and will continue to explore other areas of Block 15/06; any new discoveries there will be integrated with the production infrastructure already in place.
