SAN DONATO MILANESE, Italy – Eni has started up the Ndungu Early Production (EP) oil development in Angola’s deep-offshore Block 15/06, via the FPSO Ngoma.

Ndungu, with initial planned production of around 20,000 b/d, should sustain plateau output through the FPSO, which was upgraded in 2021 to minimize its emissions.

Over the next few months Eni plans further exploration and delineation drilling to assess Ndungu’s full potential.

This is the third start-up on Block 15/06 within seven months, following the after Cuica Early Production and Cabaca North Development project.

Eni Angola’s partners are Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção and SSI Fifteen.
