FPSO Egina total petrobras

Total's Aegina FPSO, built by Samsung Heavy Industries of Nigeria (SHIN), departed the fabrication and integration yard in Lagos for its final location off the coast of Nigeria.

The Egina oil field is located some 130 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria at depths of over 1.500 meters. Samsung Heavy won the order to build the Egina FPSO in 2013. The newbuild contract is worth over $3,4 billion, a turnkey project in which Samsung covers all engineering, design, procurement, construction, transport and commissioning.

SHI previously formed a joint venture with a local Nigerian company and established a mega production facility in Lagos, Nigeria to meet local content requirements. The shipyard was completed in October 2016.

Egina, one of the world's largest FPSOs, left Samsung Heavy's Geoje shipyard in South Korea at the end of October 2017 and arrived at the LADOL Free Zone in Lagos, Nigeria, for final integration of modules built in the Free Zone in January from 2018.

SHIN completed work on the Egina FPSO in the SHI-MCI yard under Nigerian local content regulations. This volume of onshore work has never been done before in Nigeria, so most of the risky part of the Egina project has been completed.

Upon completion of works in Lagos, the FPSO departed for its final location off the coast of Nigeria on August 26, 2018.

Offshore Commissioning

According to Samsung, the only major balancing work now is the remaining commissioning work offshore and making the FPSO ready for hydrocarbon entry in 2018. The maximum production of 200.000 barrels per day from the Aegina FPSO will increase oil production Nigerian gross by 10%.

The FPSO is to be installed in the offshore Egina field. This mega installation is 330m long, 61m wide and 34m high. It has 200.000 barrels of production per day at peak and 2,3 million barrels of storage capacity with topsides weighing 60.000 tons.

A Samsung representative said: “We are very proud to announce the successful completion of the first Nigerian onshore integration works for the Egina FPSO with full preparation in compliance with Nigerian local content, both schedule and cost management. were carried out as planned.

French oil company Total is the operator of the Egina oil field, with CNOOC, Petrobras and Sapetro as partners.
