Egina FPSO arrives in Nigeria for integration works
Egina, a floating, production, storage and offloading unit (FPSO), has arrived in Nigeria after its three-month journey from South Korea.
Owned by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Total Upstream Nigeria and her partners, the 330-metre Egina left Samsung Heavy Industries’ Geoje shipyard in South Korea on October 31.
It is berthed at the new 500-metre FPSO integration quayside at the SHI-MCI Yard on Ladol Island, Lagos, where six locally fabricated modules will be integrated over the next few months.
The US$16 billion project is the largest investment project in Nigeria’s oil and gas sector. It is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of the year.
It will add 200,000 barrels a day to Nigeria’s oil production, approximately 10 per cent of the country’s total oil production.
