    Nigeria: Total launches EGINA development on OML 130

    Total

    Total’s subsidiary Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNI), operator of the OML 130 block, and co-venturers have obtained the necessary approvals from Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to award the main EPC contracts for the development of the offshore Egina field.

    The field, discovered in 2003, is located in water depths of around 1,600 meters, 200 kilometers offshore Port Harcourt and 20 kilometers southwest of the Akpo field, located on the same license.

    The field development plan calls for 44 wells connected to a 330-meter-long floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel with a storage capacity of 2.3 million barrels. The design of the FPSO includes capacity for future developments of nearby discoveries. First oil is expected by the end of 2017, with output reaching 200,000 barrels of oil per day.

    TUPNI has a 24% interest alongside the OML 130 partners: Nigerian National Petroleum Corp. (NNPC), South Atlantic Petroleum (SAPETRO) of Nigeria, CNOOC Ltd. of China, and Petrobras of Brazil.

    In 2012, Total celebrated 50 years of its presence in Nigeria. In 2012, its production in Nigeria was at 279,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
