TotalEnergies Begins Production From 50,000bpd Ikike Field

The OML99 operator TotalEnergies (40%) has announced the beginning of production from the Nigerian Ikike field.

The announcement was made by TotalEnergies on Monday in Lagos in a statement that was published on its website.

A joint venture between TotalEnergies and Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. is the Ikike project (60 per cent).

The Ikike platform, which is 20 kilometers off the coast and at a depth of roughly 20 meters, is connected to the current Amenam offshore facilities by a 14-kilometer multiphase pipeline, according to the statement.

According to the announcement, peak production of 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day will be achieved by the end of 2022.

“The Ikike project leverages existing facilities to keep costs low, and is designed to minimise greenhouse gas emissions: estimated at less than 4kg CO2e/boe.

“They will contribute to reducing the average carbon intensity of TotalEnergies’ upstream portfolio,” it said.

According to the statement, 95 per cent of the hours were performed by local contractors, who also produced and assembled both the topside modules and the jacket.

“TotalEnergies is pleased to start production at Ikike, which was launched a few months before the COVID-19 pandemic, and whose success owes a lot to the full mobilisation of the teams.

“By tapping discoveries close to existing facilities, this project fits the company’s strategy of focusing on low-cost and low-emission oil projects,” said Henri-Max Ndong-Nzue, Senior Vice President Africa, Exploration and Production at TotalEnergies.

TotalEnergies has been in Nigeria for more than 60 years and currently employs more than 1,800 individuals in a variety of economic sectors.

Nigeria is one of the key producing nations for TotalEnergies, where the company generated 240,000 boe/d in 2021.

Additionally, TotalEnergies runs a sizable distribution network throughout the nation that includes around 540 gas stations.
