Total has started production from Dalia Phase 1A, a new development on its operated, deepwater Block 17, 135 km off the coast of Angola. Dalia Phase 1A will develop additional reserves of 51 MMbbl and will contribute 30,000 bopd to the block’s production. Arnaud Breuillac, president of E&P at Total, said, “The Dalia FPSO came onstream nearly nine years ago, and with the addition of Phase 1A will still produce around 200,000 bopd. It is the latest milestone in the success story of Block 17, Total’s most prolific license with cumulative production reaching 2 Bbbl in May 2015.” The Dalia Phase 1A project involves the drilling of seven infill wells tied back to the Dalia FPSO. Total operates Block 17 with a 40% interest alongside Statoil (23.33%), Esso Exploration Angola Block 17 Ltd. (20%) and BP Exploration Angola Ltd. (16.67%). Sonangol is the concessionaire of the license.
