Sonangol and Total will break ground on a deepwater oil pumping project that will increase Angola’s production by more than 30,000 B/D. Four multiphase, high-pressure subsea pumps will be installed at the Rosa field in Angola Block 17 that will enable the recovery of an additional 42 million bbl, Sonangol said. Total is the operator of the block with a 40% interest, with other interests held by Statoil (23.33%), ExxonMobil (20%), and BP (16.67%). Sonangol is the concessionaire.
