The Sangomar Field Development (formerly SNE) is positioned to be Senegal's first offshore oil development, and we are targeting a final investment decision in 2019.

The Sangomar field is a deep-water oil field discovery located offshore 100 km south of Dakar. In December 2018, Woodside was appointed operator of the development and commenced front-end engineering and design activities.

The Phase 1 development concept for the Sangomar field is a stand-alone FPSO facility with subsea infrastructure. It will be designed to allow subsequent development phases, including options for potential gas export to shore and for future subsea tiebacks from other reservoirs and fields.

We are committed to working with our joint venture participants, key stakeholders and the Government of Senegal to achieve the earliest commercialisation of the Sangomar field.
