Just In!! Nigeria’s Biggest Oil Producing Vessel Arrives Lagos From South Korea (Photos)


The Nigeria oil and gas industry recorded another milestone as the the $3.3 billion Egina Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) vessel arrived in Lagos Nigeria from South Korea for oil production from the $16 billion 200,000 barrels per day capacity Egina deepwater oilfield Located in the Oil Mining Lease (OML) 130 offshore.

The vessel arrived at the Samsung Yard (SHI-MCI FZE quayside) in Lagos on Tuesday.

The FPSO, which was built by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), sailed away from the quay side at Samsung Yard in Geoje, South Korea, on October 31, 2017, on its long anticipated journey to Nigeria, which was initially estimated to last for 90 days.

The Egina oilfield, which will add 200,000 barrels per day of crude oil to Nigeria’s daily production when it comes on stream by the end of 2018, is being developed by Total Upstream Nigeria Limited (TUPNL) at the cost of $16 billion.

Egina FPSO is a giant oil production ship operated by Total for the production of crude from its Egina oil field deep offshore Nigeria. The vessel, which left South Korea on October 31, last year, is in Lagos for further integration of its six topsides at LADOL Free Trade Zone, Tarkwa Bay, Lagos. The vessel had sailed for three months.


The Egina FPSO has a storage capacity of 2.2 million barrels of crude oil and a daily production of 108,000 barrels per day capacity. It is 35 meters high, 330 meters long, with a flare boom that is 100 meters high just as it has capacity to accommodate 200 people at a time. See more photos below
