- Operator: Chevron
- Country: Angola
- Location: Block 0, Offshore
- Production start: 1996
- Type: Oil & Gas
- Estimated Reserves:
- Production Volume:
- The Nemba field, located in Area B of Block 0 approximately 37 miles (62 kilometers) west of the Malongo Terminal, is being developed through two production platforms, South and North Nemba.
- Both platforms include gas compression facilities for gas conservation and secondary recovery through rich gas injection.
- The North Nemba drilling program includes 12 wells, nine oil/condensate production wells and three gas injection wells
- Early oil was produced using the Jamestown FPSO, prior to installation of the permanent platforms
- Early Production System (EPS), including subsea trees, wellhead adapter spool assemblies, system integration testing, installation assistance, service and maintenance
- Design and supply of permanent spread mooring system for installation on an early production system
- McDermott-ETPM: Pipeline installation
- ETPM: North Nemba Installation
- 1996 - Early oil production begins
- 1998 - South Nemba comes on stream
- 2001 - North Nemba comes on stream
- 2010 - Alliance Engineering awarded South Nemba Auxiliary project
- The trapping mechanism is a south-plunging anticlinal horst surrounded on all sides by faults that are sealed vertically by fine-grained upper Cretaceous rocks and laterally by Tertiary shale. Numerous small faults occur within the structure.
- A gas cap (up to 1,100 ft thick in the northernpart of the reservoir) overlies a 480-ft-thick oil column.
- The Pinda formation in the field consists of a sequence of interbedded carbonate and clastic rocks that is more than 3,500 ft thick in the discovery well
