Global energy major, Eni, has brought the Ndungu field, located on Block 15/06 in the Angolan deep offshore basin, onstream – representing Eni’s third project start-up in Angola over the past seven months. The Italian multinational, through its collaborative relationship with the National Agency for Oil, Gas and Biofuels (ANPG), has been committed to addressing production decline and driving net-zero practices in Angola, accelerating progress in key blocks across Angolan offshore prospects.

The Ndungu Early Production Development Project is expected to produce 20,000 barrels of oil per day (bpd). Block 15/06 is currently operated by Eni Angola with a 36.84% share, with other Joint Venture (JV) partners being Sonangol’s subsidiary; Sonangol Pesquisa e Produção with 36.84% and exploration; and development company SSI Fifteen Limited with 26.32%.

Operating in joint partnerships, the developments illustrate Eni’s commitment to help oil and gas producing countries around the world ramp up production by fast-tracking offshore projects.
