TotalEnergies, in partnership with Petronas and Sonangol, has reached a final investment decision (FID) for the Kaminho deepwater project in Block 20 in the Kwanza basin offshore Angola.

The FID has been made in close collaboration with the concessionaire Agencia Nacional de Petroleo e Gas (ANPG).

Estimated to cost $6bn, the project aims to develop the Cameia and Golfinho fields, situated 100km off the Angolan coast, according to Bloomberg News.

The Kaminho project will involve the conversion of a very large crude carrier into a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit.

Designed to minimise greenhouse gas emissions by being all-electric and eliminating routine flaring, the FPSO unit will be connected to a subsea production network.

Scheduled to commence production in 2028, the Kaminho project is expected to reach a production plateau of 70,000 barrels of oil per day.
