The first vessel that will pump and store oil for Angola's 230,000 barrel per day Kaombo project is en route to the West African nation, operator Total said on Thursday.

The Kaombo oil block will produce its first oil this summer, Total said. Once it is fully up and running, it will add roughly 14 percent to the OPEC member nation's average 2017 output of 1.632 million bpd.

The Kaombo Norte floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel left Singapore earlier this week, Total said. The vessel has a capacity to pump 115,000 bpd, half the oil block's eventual production.
The second FPSO, Kaombo Sul, is still in Singapore.
