Akpo
A Giant Development in Nigeria's Deep Offshore

A deep offshore condensate & gas field in Nigeria


The AKPO field was discovered in 2000 by Total Upstream Nigeria Ltd (TUPNI). Located 150 kilometres off the Niger Delta at a water depth of 1,400 metres, AKPO is the first deep-offshore development involving light oil with a high gas content. In the field's Miocene reservoir the fluid is in critical conditions, i.e. the gas and liquid hydrocarbons are in a single phase, at high pressure and temperature. The produced gas is partly re-injected and partly exported onshore to the Umbilicals and flowlines BONNY liquefaction plant (NLNG) via the 69 km field facilities. This hybrid AMENAM of 10 production flow lines in 4 loops 32 km of 10 water injection flow lines injection/export gas scheme optimises (4 lines) 8 km of 8 gas injection flow line hydrocarbon recovery: gas is injected only150reservoirs which can benefit from in km 16 gas-export pipeline from AKPO to AMENAM this type of pressure support. On the same OML 130 block as AKPO, three oil discoveries (EGINA, EGINASubsea production system SOUTH and PREOWEI) now form the 44 wells, with vertical Christmas Trees basis 22 oil producers for an oil development with a new 20 water injectorsEGINA zone. Both FPSO located in the 2 gas injectors AKPO and EGINA, with their ability to 9 offline production manifolds handle a variety of fluids, will be ideal 1 offline gas injection manifold hubs for developing future hydrocarbon discoveries in the area.
