The Ndungu EP project, with an expected production rate in the range of 20 000 bpd, will sustain the plateau of the Ngoma, a 100 000 bpd zero-discharge and zero-process flaring FPSO, upgraded in 2021 to minimise emissions.
A further exploration and delineation campaign will be performed in the first half of 2022 with the aim to assess the full potential of the overall asset of Ndungu.
Ndungu EP is the third start-up achieved by Eni Angola in Block 15/06 in the last 7 months, after Cuica Early Production and Cabaca North Development Project.
Block 15/06 is operated by Eni Angola with a 36.84% share. Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção (36.84%) and SSI Fifteen Limited (26.32%) compose the rest of the Joint Venture. Further to Block 15/06, Eni is the operator of exploration Blocks Cabinda North, Cabinda Centro, 1/14 and 28, as well as of the New Gas Consortium (NGC). In addition, Eni has stakes in the non-operated Blocks 0 (Cabinda), 3/05, 3/05A, 14, 14 K/A-IMI, 15 and in the Angola LNG.
