EGINA 2018

A COLOSSAL PROJECT IN ULTRA-DEEP WATER

The project is based on a subsea production system connected to a FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading vessel) designed to hold 2.3 million barrels of oil. Weighing close to 220,000 metric tons and measuring 330 meters long by 60 meters wide, the Egina FPSO is the largest ever built by Total. Once construction work is complete, the FPSO will be connected to 44 subsea wells 1,600 meters deep and is expected to produce 200,000 barrels of oil per day.

The field is being developed by Total Upstream Nigeria (24%) in partnership with CNOOC (45%), Sapetro (15%) and Petrobras (16%). Egina is the third deep offshore development of Total in Nigeria.

FPSO: A floating production storage and offloading(FPSO) unit is a floating vessel used by the offshore oil and gas industry for the production and processing of hydrocarbons, and for the storage of oil.

 

Nigerian local economic development policy focuses on three main areas: hiring and training local people, purchasing local goods and services, and developing local infrastructures.

Total, the Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board (NCDMB) and the main project contractors have set themselves an ambitious objective: to train more than 200 Nigerian students as engineers and technicians, in order to develop their skills and improve their career prospects.
Today, more than half of the people involved in building the project infrastructure are Nigerian, and close to 75% of the hours worked on the project have been onsite in Port Harcourt or in Lagos.
We also intend to manufacture 58,000 metric tons of equipment locally, representing one third of the project’s massive requirements.
Lastly, infrastructure in the country has been extended and enhanced, notably via the construction of a 500-meter-long dock to assemble the FPSO. Once it has served this purpose, the dock will be available for other industrial projects.

A win-win partnership that should enable Total and Nigeria to continue together on an adventure that began more than 50 years ago.
