Eni begins production from Cuica field, offshore Angola

20 Aug 2021

Italian oil and gas company Eni has announced the start of production from the Cuica field, located in Block 15/06 of the Angolan deep offshore.

The field is producing through the Armada Olombendo floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.

Discovered by the exploration well Cuica 1 in March this year, the Cuica field is located in a water depth of 500 metres.

The field is located nearly 3km from the Olombendo FPSO, which has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil per day.

The development of the Cuica field is expected to increase and sustain the Olombendo FPSO production plateau. It consists of a producer well and a water injection well, tied back subsea to the existing Cabaça North subsea production system.

Apart from Cuica, the Armada Olombendo FPSO receives and treats the production of the Cabaça, Cabaça South East and UM8 fields for a total of 12 wells and 5 manifolds.

In the fourth quarter of this year, the FPSO is expected to start receiving production from the Cabaça North field.
