The nation’s oil production will be boosted by 200,000 barrels per day by the fourth quarter of 2018, the Deputy Managing Director of Total, a principal partner of the Egina Project, Mr. Ahmadu Musa-Kida, has said.
Musa-Kida disclosed this at the celebration of the Egina manifold sail away in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, according to a statement by the Group General Manager, Public Affairs, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu.
In crude oil production, the manifold is the gathering point designed to permit the use of pump-down tools, provide for individual well tests, handle injection of chemicals for inhibition of corrosion as well as provide for artificial lift and control.
Musa-Kida said when completed by the fourth quarter of 2018, the Egina project would add 200,000bpd to Nigeria’s daily crude oil production.
Shedding more light on the project, the Chairman of Aveon Offshore Limited, Mr. Tein George, said the project, which gulped over $30m, was delivered ahead of schedule with zero loss time injury in about 5.5 million man-hours.
