“The sale of our interest in Block 15/06 is in line with Total’s global strategy to actively manage its portfolio and focus its investment capability on core assets in which it has more material interests, such as Block 17 with the CLOV project currently under development and the future development of Kaombo on Block 32 in Angola,” said Jacques Marraud des Grottes, Senior Vice-President Africa at Total’s Exploration and Production.

Block 15/06

Block 15/06 is located approximately 350 km northwest of Luanda in deep offshore Angola and covers approximately 2,984 square kilometres, with a water depth ranging from 220 to 1,700 m.

The block is operated by Eni (35%) with partners Total (15%), Sonangol (15%), SSI (a joint affiliate of Sinopec and Sonangol, 25%), Statoil (5%) and Falcon Oil Angola Investimentos (5%).
