Total Committed to Nigeria
Nicolas Terraz, MD of Total Upstream Companies in Nigeria, reaffirmed his company’s commitment to Nigeria while speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the SPE Nigeria Annual International Conference & Exhibition.
Terraz highlighted the $10 billion the company has invested in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector over the last five years as proof of Total’s commitment.
Currently Total is responsible for 195,000 bpd of Nigeria’s oil production and its Egina field will add to that total when it comes onstream in 2018, to the tune of 200,000 bpd.
The Egina FPSO is set to sail away from Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea in Q3, with an estimated time of arrival in Nigeria of Q4. Once the Egina arrives in Nigeria six locally fabricated topside modules with be integrated on the FPSO at the SHI-MCI Yard at LADOL, before its final sail away to the Egina site.
