Confirmation of the Potential of a Fourth Production in Angola

Sociedade Nacional de Combustiveis de Angola (Sonangol) and Total E&P Angola, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Total, announce that the Orquidea-2 appraisal well has confirmed and expanded the potential of the Orquidea discovery in Block 17 offshore Angola.

Located approximately 2 kilometres from the Orquidea-1 discovery well and drilled in a water depth of 1,165 metres, Orquidea-2 identified and confirmed the Miocene objectives encountered by Orquidea-1 and also identified deeper Oligocene reservoir levels. The Oligocene and Miocene objectives are both oil-bearing.
