Total Commences $15bn Egina Project by Rhino5dm: 10:58am On Jun 26, 2013
By MICHAEL EBOH, With Agency ReportTotal SA has commenced the development of the $15 billion (N2.4trillion) Nigeria’s offshore Egina field as part of its plan to boost production.

The company said first oil from the field, which is part of the Oil Mining Lease, OML 130, is expected at the end of 2017, with output
reaching 200,000 barrels of oil a day.The company further stated that the project will be started after it obtained the necessary approvals from authorities in the oil and gas sector to award the main contracts.

Christophe de Margerie, Chief Executive Officer, Total, said the
company will use proceeds from asset sales to pay dividends and
develop oil and gas projects rather than make acquisitions.
The company also pledged to try harder to make large oil and gas
discoveries in a bid to raise production.

The company said, “The Egina project calls for 44 wells connected
to a 330 meter-long floating production, storage and offloading
vessel which can store 2.3 million barrels, “Locally worked hours
will reach about 75 per cent for Egina as part of a plan to boost
local content of Nigerian projects.

”Total is operator of Egina with a 24 per cent interest. The other
partners are Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, South
Atlantic Petroleum of Nigeria, Cnooc Limited and Petroleo Brasilero
SA.

This is the biggest project to be executed in the history of Nigeria and kodus to Jonathan's administration for making it possible. cool

The sweetest part of this is, the government zeroed the expatriate quota on this project as part of the MoU to boost local contents i.e. nearly all the manpower and suppliers will be local. Very soon, all the jobless grown folks on nairaland will be no more (Afam4eva comes to mind) shocked

Egina Oil Field, Nigeria

The Egina oil field is located 150km off the coast of Nigeria. The field is being developed by Total Upstream Nigeria (24%) in partnership with NNPC (10%), CNOOC (45%), Sapetro (5%) and Petrobras (16%). Egina is the third deep offshore development of Total in Nigeria. The field is currently under development and the production is scheduled to begin by 2014/2015.
Located about 20km away from Akpo field, Egina field lies within the block Oil Mining Lease OML 130 and covers an area of around 500 square miles. It is situated at a water depth of up to 1,750m.

Discovery

The field was discovered in December 2003 when the Egina-1 well was drilled. Following the discovery, the appraisal well Egina-2 was drilled in October 2004. The appraisal programme and seismic data processing resulted in the Egina-3 well drilling in September 2006, which occurred at a water depth of approximately 1,500m. Following this, Egina-4 was drilled in November 2006 and Egina-5 was drilled in January 2007.

Oil reserves

The five wells on Egina field encountered 60 to 80m of oil in Miocene sands. The oil reserves are estimated at 550 million barrels. The light oil is rated at 28° API.

Egina field development

The Egina field was initially planned to be developed as a subsea tieback to the Akpo floating production storage and offloading vessel (FPSO). Major discoveries in the area, however, lead to the stand alone development of Egina.
Basic engineering studies of the field were begun in 2008. The development plan was approved by the Nigerian authorities in 2009. Pre-qualification tenders were invited for the engineering, procurement, construction and supply of essential generators packages. These packages will be integrated on a FPSO unit. The FPSO development project involves the design, procurement, construction, hook-up, pre-commissioning, transportation and commissioning of the FPSO hull and topsides.
The first comprehensive front end engineering design (FEED) was completed in July 2010 and carried out by J P Kenny and MCS Kenny.

Egina field infrastructure

"Egina includes an FPSO unit,
oil offloading terminal and various subsea production systems."
Egina field infrastructure includes an FPSO unit, an oil offloading terminal and subsea production systems such as risers, flowlines, umbilicals and subsea manifolds.
Total began the development of a new FPSO for the project. The FPSO will measure approximately 330m in length, 61m in width and 33.5m in depth, and is expected to have an oil storage capacity of approximately two million barrels. The FPSO will have topsides modules with a gross dry weight of 34,000t.

Contracts

In July 2009, Total awarded a FEED contract to Dover Engineering. Dover signed an agreement with J P Kenny and MCS Kenny to facilitate project delivery. The contract provides scope for the comprehensive design studies and engineering assessments, development of specifications, documentation and technology studies, and design of the umbilicals,flowlines, risers and the subsea production systems used in the field development."It is estimated that the field will produce 150,000 barrels of oil per day." Total has signed a major contract with Abbott Risk Consulting (ARC) in 2008 for safety engineering design studies on the Egina FPSO project. Under the contract, ARC is responsible for conducting fire risk analysis, explosion modelling, gas dispersion modelling and quantitative risk assessment. ARC will also carry out a range of other studies to conclude a number of design options. The engineering, procurement and construction contract of the Egina turbo-compressors is expected to be awarded between late 2010 and early 2011. The packages will be delivered to the FPSO fabrication site within two years of the contractual award.

Production

The Egina field is expected to come onstream by the end of 2014 or early 2015. The production from the Egina-5 well is estimated to reach 12,000 barrels per day.The oil field is estimated to reach a peak production rate of 150,000 barrels per day, while the new FPSO will have a production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day.

Dude, Look, there's a serious crackdown on these expatriates.

Initially, I thought the government officials are just bluffing as usual, until they refused us access to an expatriate we are seeking to employ from uk. They told us to advertise the job on a national daily for 3 weeks after which we can seek for an expatriate.

Local content stuff is a ruse. Advertising a position in local media is a mere formality, just say all candidates are not qualified and hire your expat. Simple as abc.

Nigeria needs to kill NNPC, set up a competent oil platform in mode of Petrobras and develop local experts that can run the oil industry. Until we have a competent local partner who can reasonably give these oil majors decent competition, we should talk about something else.

Stop muddling up things. Last year we had a project that requires 200 hundred engineers to do the FEED; normally this stage of the project will be carried out in Paris by French engineers.

But you know what? The local content guys forced us to recruit 110 local engineers, but there was an issue with competency of those to be employed locally; so the French guys came up an excuse of not getting the required level of experience as agreed on the contract document and all that and they got waiver to bring in some expatriates. They are looking for holes in the system to continue bringing in quacks as expatriates.


The battle is on, only if our authorities won't chicken out.

Competence abi.. Just the same way the Oyinbo that me and him are doing the exact same job on my project is more competent than I am and this deserves to earn my pay in 3 days.. grin

All I know is that this local content quota they published is not the true situation on ground. #fact. Most of the blacks on Egina are support staff. Eko towers is there for anyone interested to verify to visit. 150 million Nigerians and we are not competent to handle certain positions. grin

Total Awards $3bn Egina Oil Field Contract to Saipem


Total Logo

Total Upstream Nigeria, a joint venture partner of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has awarded a $3 billion contract for the subsea development of the Egina oil field to Italian oil and gas industry contractor, Siapem.

Under the deal, Siapem, a subsidiary of Italian oil giant Eni, will carry out engineering, procurement, fabrication, installation and pre-inauguration of 52 kilometres of oil production and water injection flowlines.

The deal will also provide 12 flexible jumpers, 20 kilometres of gas export pipelines, 80 kilometres of umbilicals, and of the mooring and offloading systems, with installation work to be carried in 2016 and 2017.

Most of the fabrication work, according to the firm, would be carried out at the Saipem Rumoulumeni yard in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, in line with Nigeria’s local content requirements.

In a statement issued yesterday, the company stated that: “The fabrication activities will be almost entirely performed in Nigeria and most of them inthe Saipem Rumoulumeni Yard in Port Harcourt, further improving the already high level of local content reached for theUsan Field Development Project, which has been carried out by Saipem for the same client.

“This very large contract confirms the leading role of Saipem in the deep water activities and in Nigeria where Saipem is present since the late 1960s and has been involved in all Country’s major developments as one of the few international contractors able to operate maximising the local content, ensuring business sustainability and, therefore, fulfilling the country requirements.”

The contract for the development of the new build floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel for the Egina was recently awarded to South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.

Samsung emerged the preferred bidder in a keenly contested bidding process conducted by the National Petroleum Investment Management System (NAPIMS), the investment arm of the NNPC, and the NNPC group executive committee, headed by Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke.

Total, it was gathered, would also use the FPSO to develop the Egina deep-water field, located some 150 kilometres off the coast of Nigeria in Oil Mining Lease (OML) 130.

The field is scheduled to come on stream in 2017. The vessel would have topside modules with a gross dry weight of 34,000 tonnes and was expected to be delivered on schedule for production activities by 2014.

Total has a 24 per cent stake in OML 130, while NNPC has 10 per cent, China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), 45 per cent, South Atlantic Petroleum SAPETRO, five per cent and Petrobras, 16 per cent.
