Kaombo, located at more than 200 kilometers off the coast in ultra-deep waters, contains six distinct fields (Gengibre, Gindungo, Caril, Canela, Mostarda and Louro), each posing a different geological challenge. Despite the complexity of this environment, our drilling professionals set new records in safety, efficiency and cost savings during this development.

 

Beneath the ultra-deep waters of Angola’s Gulf of Guinea lie massive reservoirs of oil and gas—658 million barrels of reserves within the Kaombo project’s 800 square kilometers alone.

Until recently, these resources were deemed unrecoverable due to their sheer size and complexity, amplified by runaway costs in the oil industry.

With 59 wells drilled, we managed to meet the challenges of the depth of the waters explored (1,950 meters) thanks to 300 kilometers of pipelines and 2 floating floating production and storage barges (FPSO).

With the deployment of reliable and cost-effective technologies, Total's professionals made tremendous efforts to rethink Kaombo's technical and contractual bases, without compromising on safety or protecting the environment.
