The Egina project takes technology and skill transfers to a new level, giving Nigeria the full benefit of Total’s deep offshore experience and expertise.



Total is operator on the Egina field located in deepwater Oil Mining Lease (OML) 130. Deep offshore development is one of the sectors strategic to our future growth. The project currently under development will have a production capacity of 200,000 barrels per day (b/d).

  • Total’s interest: 24%
  • Partners: CNOOC (45%), Petrobras (16%) and Sapetro (15%)

At the end of 2017, the start-up of the Egina development will reinforce to Nigeria’s deepwater production potential.

The development of this oil field, located 130 km from shore in a water depth of 1,750 m, will benefit from Total’s extensive deep offshore experience in the Gulf of Guinea. The field infrastructure consists of a subsea production system tied in to a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel with a processing capacity of 200,000 b/d and a storage capacity of 2,3 million barrels.

All the basic engineering work was done locally – a first in Nigeria. Total successfully met this "sustainability target" by ensuring teamwork between international companies and local contractors to accelerate the pace of technology transfer and the training of the local workforce.
