Woodside Begins First Oil Production at Sangomar, Senegal

Woodside has achieved first oil from the Sangomar field offshore Senegal, successfully delivering the country’s first offshore oil project.

The Sangomar Field Development Phase 1 includes a deepwater floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) facility with a capacity of 100,000 barrels per day and subsea infrastructure designed for future development phases.

“This is a historic day for Senegal and for Woodside,” said Woodside CEO Meg O’Neill. “First oil from Sangomar is a key milestone and aligns with our strategy. The project is expected to generate shareholder value under the production sharing contract.

“Safely delivering Senegal’s first offshore oil project during a period of global challenges showcases Woodside’s exceptional project execution capabilities. We are proud of our collaboration with PETROSEN, the Government of Senegal, and our key international and local contractors to develop this significant national resource.”

Thierno Ly, General Manager of PETROSEN E&P, expressed his satisfaction with this milestone.

“First oil from the Sangomar field marks a new era for our industry and economy, and most importantly, for our people.

“This achievement is due to the unwavering commitment of our teams, who have diligently overcome challenges to meet our strategic objectives in a complex environment. We are now well-positioned for growth, innovation, and success in the economic and social development of our nation.”
