PARIS, FRANCE: Total SA has signed several agreements covering both upstream and downstream activities with Sonangol, the national oil company of Angola.

The agreements were signed by Patrick Pouyanne, chairman and CEO of Total in a meeting with Joao Lourenco, recently elected president of the Republic of Angola and Carlos Saturnino, new chairman of Sonangol. 

The discussions resulted in several agreements between Total and Sonangol:

Zinia Phase 2 project development

Total and Sonangol agreed on the contractual conditions for the development of Zinia Phase 2, enabling a commitment to the final investment decision. Located in Block 17 and operated by Total (40 percent), Zinia 2 will be connected to the Pazflor FPSO and will produce 40,000 barrels per day.

Entry on block 48

Total and Sonangol have decided to jointly explore Block 48. This agreement contributes to restarting deep offshore exploration in Angola. The first phase of this program will last for two years with the drilling of one exploration well.

Extension of cooperation

  • Distribution of oil  products

Total and Sonangol signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop jointly a retail network in the country including logistics and the supply of oil products.

  • Renewable energy

Both companies signed a MoU providing for them to screen jointly opportunities for renewable energy supply in Angola. 

“As Angola’s main oil partner, we are pleased with the strong willingness expressed by the country’s new authorities to drive an investment dynamic in the oil and gas sector, essential to the country’s economy, after three years impacted by the sharp drop in prices. These agreements demonstrate Total’s willingness to contribute to this dynamic by restarting exploration offshore in Angola, launching new projects such as Zinia 2 on Block 17, and extending our cooperation with Sonangol to new businesses in oil product distribution and renewable energy,” said Patrick Pouyanne.
