Total Starts Oil Production from Bonga Field

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 11/28/2005, Location: Africa

Total announces the start of crude oil production from the Bonga deepwater oil and gas field, 120 kilometres offshore Nigeria. The Bonga field will produce over 200,000 barrels of oil and over 150 million cubic feet of gas per day once it reaches plateau level.

Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Total, holds a 12.5% stake along side partners Shell Nigeria E&P Corporation (the operator of the field on behalf of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation under a Production Sharing Contract), Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited and Nigerian Agip Exploration (Limited).

Located in Oil Prospecting Licence 212, the 60 square kilometre field is situated in water depths of more than 1,000 metres. Production facilities comprise a Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel together with a deepwater subsea infrastructure. The field’s initial 16 subsea oil producing and water injection wells are connected to the two million barrel storage capacity FPSO by production flowlines, risers and control umbilicals.

Associated gas from Bonga will be piped via the 268 km 32 inch Offshore Gas Gathering System to the Nigerian liquefaction (NLNG) plant for export to US and European markets.
