A Nigerian Adventure

Nicolas Terraz - Managing Director, Total E&P Nigeria
The FPSO behind us is going to leave this construction site in Lagos. It’s a step that concludes a construction phase in Nigeria which is a real first.

If the weather is not favorable we can not take the risk.

Jean-Michel Guy - Egina Project Director
What makes us proud is to have being able to execute in Nigeria a work of this magnitude but also of great quality. 
It’s a human adventure a project like this; the stakes are huge, there are multiple technological challenges.

I think today the Egina’s Sail Away is the result of a real team effort, of an extremely determined group.

The next step is the arrival of the FPSO on the Egina site, making all the connections between what we preinstalled off-shore and the completion of the final goal which is to produce the Egina oil in a few months.

Saviour Ufot - FPSO Package HSE Manager
The Egina Project has contributed so much in the development of the local content manpower and I believe that subsequent project will look at Egina as setting the standard to follow.

I am very excited going offshore with the FPSO. I’ll take away a lot from here in terms of experience and in terms of opportunities. I am very very fortunate to be part of it.

Everything that has a beginning must have an end! It’s been for me an adventure, an adventure with a lot of memories. It is very very special, it’s a masterpiece.
