business overview
second stage
of a successful field

The Mafumeira Sul Project is part of a continued effort to grow Chevron’s production capacity in offshore Block 0 and contribute to the development of Angola’s oil and gas industry. The second stage of the Mafumeira Field development, Mafumeira Sul is located 15 miles (24 km) offshore Cabinda province in 200 feet (60 m) of water.

The project includes a central processing facility, two wellhead platforms, approximately 75 miles (121 km) of subsea pipelines, 34 producing wells and 16 water injection wells. The facility has a design capacity of 150,000 barrels of liquids and 350 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. Associated natural gas from the field will be commercialized through the onshore Angola LNG (liquefied natural gas) plant in Soyo. Early production from the project began in October 2016. The main production facility of the second stage was brought on line in February 2017, and water injection support began in May, followed by gas export to the Angola LNG plant in July. Ramp-up is expected to continue through 2018.

community investment
chevron and the global fund: saving lives in Angola

Since 2008, Chevron has partnered with organizations to sponsor community programs related to HIV/AIDS education, awareness and prevention. One such organization, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, is dedicated to promoting healthy communities, eliminating new HIV infections among children and keeping HIV-positive mothers alive. In 2013, the company committed an additional $5 million over two years to the Global Fund, bringing its total investment to $60 million. 

Chevron works with partners like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to promote healthy communities.

continuing environmental stewardship

In Angola, Chevron is committed to protecting the environment. Since 2006, Chevron and its Block 0 association partners have made major investments in projects designed to maintain environmental quality. In 2015, at the fifth annual International Fair of Environment and Environmental Equipment, Services and Technologies, Chevron was recognized with the award for Best Environmental Technology. This is the second time Chevron has received this award.
