This is expressed in a note released Saturday (10) ahead of inauguration of FPSO Kaombo Norte floating unit, located in Block 32, with a daily production of 115,000 barrels of oil.

The Total also announced its plan to continue developing programme in the country, after the launch of Zínia 2 project in May.

Block 17, located 150 km off Angolan coast,  under way since 1992, has four operating FPSOs: Clov, Dália, PazFlor and Girrassol.

Meanwhile, the company and its associates intend to develop the CLOV Phase 2 project. But this entails drilling of seven additional wells.

To this purpose, the company foresees to start production in 2020 to add 40,000 barrels of oil / day.

Total also foresees to develop Dalia Phase 3 project, with  production set to start in 2021 with a production plateau of 30,000 oil/day.

To attain this goal, the firm needs to drill six additional wells.

Zínia 2, CLOV 2 and Dalia 3 will allow to reach around 150 million barrels of additional resources to maintain the production plateau of Block 17 above 400,000 barrels of oil / day until 2023.

This will allow an improve in profitability of this "prolific" block, with more than 2.6 billion barrels already produced.

Total operates in Block 17 (40% share) along with Sonangol (concessionary) and other partners like Equinor (23.33% ), Exxon Mobil (20%) and BP (16.67% ).
