Massive find for Total off the South African coast

by | Feb 26, 2019

Total E&P, the French Oil giant, that we are proud to service, has announced a major discovery 275 km south of Mossel Bay.

According to their estimates, the well could yield up to 1 billion barrels of gas. In comparison, ExxonMobile discovered 895 million barrels worldwide in 2018.

However, the well is located 3,633 m deep offshore in an area of strong oceanic currents and heavy winds, making the extraction a real engineering feast!
