TotalEnergies and its partners have taken a final investment decision on an $850 million project in Angola to further develop the deepwater Clov complex in Block 17.

The scheme, said ANPG, the country’s upstream regulator, will see further subsea wells tied back to the Clov floating production, storage and offloading vessel which came online in 2014.

Clov phase three will extend the existing subsea production network in Block 17 and is expected to reach a peak output of about 30,000 barrels per day.
