France’s Total has started up production from the Moho Nord deep offshore project, located 75 km offshore Pointe-Noire in the Republic of the Congo.
The project has a production capacity of 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. The Moho Nord field is developed through 34 wells tied back to a new tension leg platform and to Likouf, a new floating production unit. The oil is processed on Likouf and then exported by pipeline to the Djeno onshore terminal, also operated by Total.
“Moho Nord is the biggest oil development to date in the Republic of the Congo. A showcase for Total’s deep offshore operational excellence, it consolidates our leading position in Africa.” stated Arnaud Breuillac, President, Exploration & Production at Total.
Total is the operator of the project with a 53.5 per cent interest. Its partners are Chevron Overseas (Congo) Limited (31.5 per cent) and Société Nationale des Pétroles du Congo (15 per cent).
