Oil Discovery in the Moho-Bilondo Permit in the Republic of the Congo

Total (operator, 53.5%) announces an oil find in the Moho-Bilondo exploration permit, located around 80 kilometres offshore the Republic of the Congo, in water depths ranging from 600 to 900 metres.

Drilled to a total vertical depth of 2,269 metres, the Mobi Marine 2 well identified two new oil-bearing structures at the base of the Upper Miocene over a combined thickness of around 30 metres. This discovery is the first step in a process designed to add further reserves to the current Phase 1 development of Moho Bilondo. The new resources are being appraised and a development plan is being prepared.
