The project will be undertaken by Alderley Process Technologies, a subsidiary of Alderley plc. The Kaombo field is located 260km offshore Luanda in Angola and will produce around 230,000 Barrels of oil per day (BOPD).
The operator Total has a 30% share on Block 32. The other partners are Sonangol Pesquisa & Produção (30%), Sonangol Sinopec International Limited (20%), Esso (15%) and Galp (5%).
