THE KIABO FIELD - HOW TO DEVELOP A MARGINAL FIELD USING AN FPSO

The development of Kiabo field in Block 4 offshore Angola illustrates how a fit-for-purpose approach to production facilities combined with flexible contractual relationships and a favourable regime can result in the profitable production of marginal oil reserves. The Kiabo development project utilizes a mobile offshore production system optimized for marginal field applications and is proceeding in a phased manner that both reduces initial capital costs and keeps open the window of opportunity for evaluating additional area potential and developing it with existing facilities.
