Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Total, through its subsidiary Elf Petroleum Nigeria Limited, operator of the NNPC/EPNL Joint Venture with a 40% interest, announce the launch of the Phase 2 of Ofon Field Development Project. The field is located offshore east of Nigeria in OML 102, around 50 kilometres from the coastline, in a water depth of about 40 metres.

Ofon field came on stream in December 1997. The additional reserves (proved and probable) to be developed during this phase are estimated to be over 350 million barrels of oil equivalent. The additional reserves should allow an increase of oil output by around 60,000 barrels per day to around 100,000 barrels per day by the end of 2010.

In addition of existing facilities, new installations consisting of a processing platform, three drilling platforms and an accommodation platform for more than 120 people should be built during Phase 2 of the field development. The new central complex is expected to come on stream in 2010, with development drilling continuing subsequently.

The new phase of the field development project will eliminate gas flaring in Ofon, in line with the policy of the Federal Government of Nigeria and give support to the NNPC/EPNL Joint Venture meeting its gas commitments. Gas will be monetised through the NLNG plant. In addition, all produced water will be re-injected into the reservoir.

In line with Total’s commitments, the Ofon 2 project will contribute significantly to Nigeria’s local content policy in terms of construction works as well as training of Nigerian engineers, technicians and other professionals.
