Ikike field comes on stream, adds 50,000 bpd to Nigeria’s oil output

By Eyo Nsima

TotalEnergies Ikike oil field has come on stream, promising to add 50,000 barrels per day, bpd, to Nigeria’s output.
The field, which is located on Oil Mining Lease, OML99, has TotalEnergies as operator (40%) in partnership with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC, 60%).

According to TotalEnergies, Ikike platform is tied back to the existing Amenam offshore facilities through a 14 km multiphase pipeline.

The Ikike project leverages existing facilities to keep costs low and is designed to minimize greenhouse gas emissions: estimated at less than 4kg CO2e/boe, they will contribute to reducing the average carbon intensity of TotalEnergies’ upstream portfolio.
In addition, 95 percent of hours were worked locally: the jacket, as well as the topside modules, were entirely built and integrated by local contractors.

The Senior Vice President Africa, Exploration and Production at TotalEnergies, Henri-Max Ndong-Nzue, said: “TotalEnergies is pleased to start production at Ikike, which was launched a few months before the covid pandemic, and whose success owes a lot to the full mobilization of the teams. By tapping discoveries close to existing facilities, this project fits the Company’s strategy of focusing on low-cost and low-emission oil projects.”
