bbl/day of water injection. It will also entail approximately 100km of rigid flowlines, 100km of
flexible flowlines and 100km of Umbilicals.

The Agogo Integrated West Hub will produce hydrocarbons from Agogo and Ndungu Fields via
both the existing Ngoma FPSO and the new Agogo FPSO that will be operational from mid f 2026,
reaching a peak of production of 175.000 Bbl / day, thus fully exploiting the utilization and
synergies with the existing infrastructures of the western area of the block 15/06, in order to
optimize the project schedule and associated cost.

Adriano Mongini, Azule Energy CEO commented: “The signing of these contracts marks the start
of a new wave of major investment in the deep water of Angola and it will deliver a significant
value of activities for the country oil and gas industry. This Project will also represent an important
contribution towards the increase of the Country oil production.”

“The support provided by Angola’s Ministry of Mineral Resources and Petroleum and the National
Concessionaire (ANPG), has been essential in finalizing this new integrated development project”
Mr. Mongini added.
