The French company said phase 2 will have a liquid treatment capacity of 180,000 barrels a day and is expected to start up by 2022.
"The Mero project will contribute to the growth of the group's production from 2020 onwards. Once the full potential of the field is developed, production should reach more than 600,000 barrels a day," said Arnaud Breuillac, president of exploration and production at Total.
The Mero 1 project, currently under development, is progressing as planned with a start-up scheduled in 2021, Total said.
