Eni has been present in Nigeria since 1962 operated mostly as Nigeria Agip Oil Company (NAOC) within various joint ventures with NNPC/IOCs. In 2017, Eni’s oil&gas production averaged 109 kboe/d located mainly onshore and offshore the Niger Delta.
Blocks OMLs 60, 61, 62 and 63
Onshore four licenses produced approximately 44 kboe/d and accounted for approximately 40% of Eni’s production in Nigeria in 2017. Liquid and gas production is supported by the NGL plant at Obiafu-Obrikom with a treatment capacity of approximately 1 bcf/d and by the oil tanker terminal at Brass with a storage capacity of approximately 3,5 mmbbl. A large portion of the gas production of these four OMLs supplies the Bonny Island liquefaction plant. Another portion of gas production is employed in firing the combined cycle power plant at Okpai with a 480 MW generation capacity.
In 2017, supplies to this power station were an overall amount of approximately 70 mmcf/d.
