Exploration & Production in Angola

On the production side, we operate several licenses, each comprising several fields:
- Located in nearly 1,300 meters of water, the deep offshore Block 17 (40%) is our primary asset in Angola. It comprises four major hubs, Girassol, Dalia, Pazflor and CLOV.
- Ultra-deep offshore Block 32 (30%), where water depths range from 1,400 to 1,900 meters. The Kaombo development, the block's first hub, contains six of the 12 fields discovered.

We hold working interests in Blocks 14 (20%), 14K (36.7%), 0 (10%) and 39 (7.5%).

On the exploration side, we operate:
- Block 17/06 (30%) in the Lower Congo Basin.
- Blocks 25 (35%) and 40 (40%), both of which are located offshore in the South Kwanza Basin.

In the liquefied natural gas sector, we hold a 13.6% stake in the Angola LNG project. Located near Soyo in the northwestern Zaire Province, the gas liquefaction plant is supplied with associated gas from the country's offshore oil fields.

Marketing & Services

We mainly market lubricants through retailers. We have also signed a contract to produce and distribute marine lubricants under the Total brand.
