Dec 03, 2003 01:00 AM

Angola's National Oil Society (Sonangol) and Total in Luanda announced that the offshore Block 17 Jasmin oil field has started production.
A note from Sonangol distributed to Angop states that Jasmin Oil Field, discovered in April 2000 is one of the 15 located on the Block 17 and is the second taking off after Girassol that started in December 2001.

Situated 1,400 metres deep and about 150 km off the Angolan coast, Jasmin development requires 8 underwater wells connected with adjacent Girassol storing and processing station that lies 5 km away.
The start of operation of Jasmin will permit the rise of debit of the storing and processing station to a minimum of 23,000 bpd and prolong its production plateau and is part of the Block 17 production hike strategy, translated by Sonangol's this year authorisation for the development of the Dalia field that will start operation in the second half of 2006.

Sonangol is the franchise holder of Block 17, being Total the operator, with a 40 % share.
It has as its associates Esso Exploration Angola (Block 17) with 20 %, BP Exploration (Angola) with 16,67 %, Statoil Angola Block 17 AS, 13,33 % and Norsk Hydro with 10.
