The Tômbua-Lândana project, Galp Energia's third field to come in production in block 14 in Angola, uses a compliant piled tower (CPT) at 474 metres, higher than the Empire State Building in New York.
This project was planned for zero gas burning, which will be processed and stored in a gas liquefaction project, and for zero discharge of produced water, which will be re-injected in the oil reservoirs.
This unit will be one of the first units in Angola's offshore to apply this technology in order to improve recovery and decrease pollution.
The field covers approximately 425 km² and is located in water depths between 200 and 2,000 metres.
The main production units include a drilling platform
and undersea pipelines as well as gas and water injection systems.
Made in eight countries, including Angola, the production facilities for the Tômbua-Lândana project were set up off the coast in order to expedite matters and make it less costly. This project came into operation in August 2009. Production is expected to peak at 60 thousand barrels per day.
