Eni Unlocks Black Gold in Deep Angolan Waters

Eni has made two new oil discoveries in Block 15/06, in deep Angolan waters. Eni is the operator of Block 15/06, holding a 35% working interest in the block.

Drilled by the Scarabeo 7, the discovery wells Nzanza-1 and Cinguvu-1 are located around 350 km northwest of Luanda, in a water depth of some 1,400 meters.

During production testing, the Nzanza-1 well produced oil with a density of 18 API gravity at rates above 1,600 barrels/day. At Cinguvu-1, the production test reached a maximum flow of 6,400 barrels/day of oil with a density of 23 API gravity.

The other partners are Sonangol P&P (15%), SSI Fifteen Limited (20%), Total (15%), Petrobras (5%), Falcon Oil Holding Angola AS (5%), and Statoil Angola Block 15/06 AS (5%).

Nzanza-1 and Cinguvu-1 results follow the success of Cabaça Norte-1 reaching a count of three consecutive oil discoveries in the block in 2009, and five in total, including Sangos and NGoma drilled by Block 15/06 partnership in 2008. Additional exploratory wells will be drilled in Block 15/06 yet this year.
