The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) has proudly announced the initiation of oil production from the Akpo West Field.
This achievement, resulting from meticulous planning and collaboration, is poised to contribute an additional 14,000 barrels per day of condensate to the nation’s production.
The development, located on Petroleum Mining Lease (PML) 2, utilizes the existing Akpo Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility via a subsea tie-back, emphasizing cost-efficiency and emissions reduction.
This milestone aligns with NNPC’s commitment to enhancing Nigeria’s hydrocarbon production capacity. TotalEnergies, alongside partners CNOOC, Sapetro, and Prime 130, operates the field.
NNPC’s strategic leadership, particularly under the guidance of Group Chief Executive Officer Mele Kyari, has been instrumental in achieving the short- and mid-term production goals.
Positioned 135 kilometers offshore, the Akpo West Field is espected to omprove Nigeria’s energy sector, aligning with TotalEnergies’ focus on low-cost, low-emission projects while promising significant value creation for the country and its partners.
