Context and environment Kaombo is a deep offshore (1,400 to 1,900 m depth) development located West Africa, offshore Angola intended to produce Oil and Gas from medium size dispersed (23 x 41 km) reservoirs (Oligocene and Miocene - 6 development areas). The two FPSO units (converted VLCCs; 2 x 115,000 bopd; about 2 Mbbl storage per FPSO) have been designed with production, water injection and gas export flowlines, risers and umbilicals (6 x subsea hybrid production loops (10 '' and 12'' insulated production lines looped with non insulated lines) i.e. 80 km of Pipe-in-Pipe and 75 km of service line). The produced gas (2 x 3.3 Mm3/d) is exported to AnLNG via the GEP network. 59 subsea wells are planned (33 producers, 26 water injections connected to 20 manifolds). The operations of FPSO units are sub contracted to SAIPEM. Accountabilities The job holder is responsible, within the Production Support & Methods Department and under the Metering Leader, to assist implementing DB32 metering strategy, verifying the application of the Metering Management Plan, for following-up the monitoring tools' development and good operation, for following up the critical Metering point and for ensuring consistency with the overall metering system.
