Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 12/15/2006, Location: Africa

Sonangol announced first production from Angolaís deepwater Dalia field in Block 17. Discovered in September 1997 and located some 135 kilometres off the coast in water depths ranging from 1,200 to 1,500 metres. Dalia is estimated to contain close to 1 billion barrels of recoverable oil. It is the largest deepwater development to be brought onstream this year and among the largest projects of its kind in the world.

The Dalia field is comprised of 71 wells, 31 for water injection, 3 for gas injection and 37 producers tied into 9 manifolds. The subsea installation consists of 40 kilometres of insulated production flowlines linked to eight hi-tech flexible risers specially manufactured for the project and taking the fluid up to a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, which has an oil treatment capacity of 240,000 barrels of oil per day and a storage capacity of 2 million barrels.

Sonangol is the Block 17 concessionaire. Total E&P Angola, operator, has a 40% interest in Block 17, alongside partners Esso Exploration Angola (Block 17) Limited (20%), BP Exploration (Angola) Ltd. (16.67%), Statoil Angola Block 17 AS (13.33%) and Norsk Hydro Dezassete a.s. (10%).

Block 17:
Deep-offshore Block 17 is Totalís major asset in Angola. It is composed of four major zones: Girassol and Dalia, both into production, Pazflor which is in the final bidding process before sanction, and CLOV, a fourth major production area, based on Cravo, Lirio, Orquidea and Violeta discoveries, currently being studied.

On the Girassol structure, production from the Girassol field and the Jasmim field, a satellite to Girassol that came on stream in November 2003, is currently at more than 250,000 barrels per day of oil. The development of the Rosa field, developed as a 15 kilometre tie back to the Girassol FPSO (Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading) facility, was launched in July 2004. The field is scheduled to come on stream in the second quarter of 2007 and is expected to maintain the FPSOís production plateau at 250,000 barrels per day.

Dalia, one of the largest operated projects of Total, will contribute very significantly to the growth profile of the Group in 2007 and over the period 2006-2010.
