22 July 2008

Luanda, Angola, 22 July – Total Angola in the next three years is due to open its third production hub in bloc 17, Pazflor, investment in which will total US$8.5 billion, according to a report in Angolan newspaper Jornal de Angola.

With expected production of 220,000 barrels of oil per day, Pazflor is expected to increase the French company’s production levels to over 700,000 barrels of oil per day.

After teh Girassol well in 2001, Dália in 2006 and Rosa in 2007, Pazflor will be a new world benchmark that Total, in partnership with Sonangol and its partners, are moving ahead with to boost teh growth of the Angolan economy.

Environmental impact will be reduced on this project due to the reinsertion of production waters into the tanks at Mioceno, heat transfer of exhaust fumes from the turbines and recycling of ventilation gases.

As well as this, no more gas will be burned off, as it will be reinserted into the future liquid natural gas facility, Angola LNG, at Soyo. (macauhub)
