Eni Starts Production at Niger Delta Onshore Field
Eni has begun production from the Obiafu 41 onshore discovery onshore the Niger Delta, 3 weeks after completion.
Gas from the discovery, which holds approximately 28 billion m3 of gas and 60 million bbl of condensate, will be processed at the Eni-operated Ob-Ob plant and sent to the Eni-operated Okpai power plant, the first independent power plant in Nigeria. The plant is undergoing an upgrade to double its capacity from 500 megawatts to 1 gigawatt. It said in a statement that, once the upgrade is complete, it will generate 20% of Nigeria’s national electricity production. Approximately 30% of Eni’s Nigerian gas production supplies the domestic market.
Eni said that its integrated model, under which the various disciplines work in parallel from the exploration phase, and synergies with existing production facilities, were properly leveraged, enabling a record time-to-market from discovery. At the end of ramp-up, production will reach a capacity of about 3 million m3/D of gas and 3,000 B/D of condensate.
The Italian operator announced the discovery in late August. NNPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation) owns 60% of the field, with Eni and Oando owning 20% each. Its presence in Nigeria covers 30,049 km2 in the onshore and offshore areas of the Niger Delta.
Pemex Nears Startup on Abkatun-A2 Platform
With McDermott announcing “substantial completion” of the production platform, operator Pemex is expected to begin commercial operations soon. Abkatun-A2 will produce up to 220,000 BOPD from shallow-water fields in the Gulf of Mexico.
People and Processes Define the Facility of the Future
Developing the facility of the future is a technological and infrastructural challenge, but the people behind the technology play just as critical of a role in actualizing complex, innovative asset designs. How will future facilities affect the way companies operate?
First Oil From Johan Sverdrup Delivered to Mongstad Plant
Equinor, the operator of the Johan Sverdrup field, said that Mongstad will receive more than 30% of the total oil from the Norwegian Continental Shelf when the field is operating at full capacity.
