Anguille first oil expected soon offshore Gabon

Offshore staff

LONDON – Phase 3 of Total’s Anguille redevelopment project offshore Gabon is continuing on schedule, the company says.

Four wells have been drilled by the Setty rig from the new AGMN platform. Three subsea flowlines have been installed and connected to the platform to tie it back to the central complex.

First oil should be achieved soon. Installation of the power grid for the Anguille and Torpille sectors has been completed.

The onshore power plant on the PG2 site and the new electrical systems installed offshore on Anguille/Torpille sectors are undergoing tests. Commissioning of the new power grid is expected to follow next month.

Elsewhere off Gabon, Total says drilling of the Diaman-1 exploration well on the Diaba license has been postponed to later in the current quarter, due to delayed availability of the drillship Ocean Rig Olympia.
