Project Description
Spanning an area of roughly 500 square miles in the Niger Delta in Block OML 130 is the Egina field, situated in a water depth of 5,085 feet (1,550 meters). Located offshore Nigeria, the undeveloped Egina field is operated by Total, holding a 24% interest; CNOOC holds 45%; Petrobras holds 16%; NNPC holds 10%; and Sapetro holds the remaining 5% interest.

Egina was discovered in December 2003 by the Egina-1 well, followed by the Egina-2 well in October 2004. Shortly after, the operator reprocessed existing seismic data and launched an appraisal program to determine the size of the Egina discovery. In September 2006, the Egina-3 well, drilled in a water depth of around 4,921 feet (1,500 meters), was discovered. Two months later, Egina-4 was found, followed by Egina-5 in ...

Egina was discovered in December 2003 by the Egina-1 well, followed by the Egina-2 well in October 2004. Shortly after, the operator reprocessed existing seismic data and launched an appraisal program to determine the size of the Egina discovery. In September 2006, the Egina-3 well, drilled in a water depth of around 4,921 feet (1,500 meters), was discovered. Two months later, Egina-4 was found, followed by Egina-5 in January 2007. Egina-5 was tested to assess its production potential, and it was estimated the well could reach 12,000 barrels per day. The five wells encountered 197 to 262 feet (60 to 80 meters) of oil in Miocene sands, and the field is estimated to reach a peak production rate of 150,000 barrels per day.

Originally, Total planned to develop the Egina field as a subsea tie-back to the Akpo FPSO, however, after yielding several promising discoveries, Total decided Egina was suitable for stand alone development. Basic engineering studies of the field commenced in 2008 and a range of field development options for the field are still being assessed, but the operator is leaning towards an FPSO development.

The bidding process for a new FPSO on the Egina field began in September 2009, and the vessel designed must have the capacity to store two million barrels of crude oil with topsides weighing roughly 34,000 tonnes.

Production from the field is expected to commence in 2015.

Total Gets Green Light for Egina Development
Type: Development Activity

Jun. 2013 - Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation gave Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (Total) all the necessary approvals needed to award the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contracts for the development of the Egina field offshore Nigeria. Egina, discovered in 2003, is located in block OML 130 in about 5,200 feet of water. Development of the field will require 44 wells to be connected to a 1,000-foot long FPSO capable of storing 2.3 million barrels of oil. The large storage capacity gives the vessel room to accommodate future developments in the area. First oil is expected near the end of 2017 with a plateau rate of 200,000 bopd. On the heels of the approvals, Total issued FMC Technologies a subsea equipment order worth an estimated $1.2 billion. FMC wills supply subsea trees and wellheads, manifolds, tooling, flowline connection systems and associated control systems. Deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2015.

FEED for Egina's Field Development Nearing Completion
Type: Contract Award

Jul. 2010 - J P Kenny and MCS Kenny, part of Wood Group, alongside Dover Engineering, are completing the first comprehensive Front End Engineering Design undertaken locally in Nigeria for the Egina field development. Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd awarded the FEED to Dover Engineering in July 2009, and Dover contracted J P Kenny and MCS Kenny to support the project delivery. The subsea scope of work included comprehensive design studies and engineering assessments, development of specifications, documentation and technology studies, relating to the design of the umbilicals, flowlines, risers and the subsea production systems of the field's development. Spanning an area of roughly 500 square miles in the Niger Delta in Block OML 130 is the Egina field, situated in a water depth of 5,085 feet (1,550 meters). Egina is operated by Total, holding a 24% interest; CNOOC holds 45%; Petrobras holds 16%; NNPC holds 10%; and Sapetro holds the remaining 5% interest.
