Total brings Moho project in Congo on stream

Total said the Moho Phase 1b project in the Republic of the Congo has been brought on stream.

The company said the site, which is 75 kilometres off the coast of Pointe-Noire, has a production capacity of 40,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.

The project will involve the drilling of 11 new subsea well and the installation of the two most powerful subsea multiphase pumps in the world.

It is tied back to the existing Floating Production Unit (FPU) of the Moho Bilondo field, which has been producing since 2008.

Arnaud Breuillac, president Exploration & Production, said: “Moho Phase 1b is our ninth start-up since the beginning of the year and will contribute to our strong production growth in the years to come.

“The start-up of this project, in line with the original schedule, constitutes a further success for Total’s growth strategy in deep offshore, particularly in West Africa.

“It follows the start-up of Dalia Phase 1A on Angola’s Block 17 in July this year and more recently, the Lianzi field which straddles the deep offshore of Congo and Angola.”

Total said the nearby Moho Nord development, launched concurrently with Moho Phase 1b in 2013, is ongoing and will add a further 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent capacity.

Moho Phase 1b and Moho Nord are part of the Moho Bilondo license operated by Total E&P Congo with a 53.5% participating interest.

The other partners are Chevron Overseas (Congo) Limited with 31.5% and the Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo with 15.0%.
