Eni has commenced production at the offshore Agogo oilfield situated in the 15/06 Block in Angolan waters.

Current production is around 10,000 barrels of oil per day, and is set to reach 20,000 barrels per day during the next weeks. According to preliminary estimates, the field holds over 650 million barrels of oil in place, with a further potential that will be verified after the drilling of new delineation wells.

Eni Angola has been operator of the Block 15/06 since 2006 in a joint venture composed by Eni (operator, 36.8421 per cent), Sonangol P&P (36.8421 per cent) and SSI Fifteen (26.3158 per cent).

The floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel N’Goma is currently deployed at the West Hub production centre situated 15 kilometres from the oilfield.
