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.
Block OML 118
The Bonga oil field produced approximately 15 kboe/d net to Eni in 2017.
Block OML 125
Production derived mainly from the Abo field which yielded approximately 14 kboe/d net to Eni in 2017.
SPDC Joint Venture (NASE)
In 2017, production from the SPDC JV accounted for approximately 30% of Eni’s production in Nigeria (approximately 33 kboe/d).
The development activities mainly concerned the completion of the Forcados-Yokri project in the OML 43 Block (Eni’s interest 5%) and the Gbaran 2A/2B and Associated gas project in the OML 28 Block (Eni’s interest 5%) to supply natural gas to the Bonny liquefaction plant.
Other ENI Upstream Ventures in Nigeria:
1. Eni holds a 10.4% interest in the Nigeria LNG Ltd joint venture, which runs the Bonny liquefaction plant located in the Eastern Niger Delta
2. Agip Energy and Natural Resources (AENR) executing the Service Contract with NNPC in OML 116 located in shallow waters (65 meters) offshore Niger Delta

ExxonMobil upstream affiliates operating in Nigeria are Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPN) and Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Ltd. (EEPNL)
Mobil Producing Nigeria is one of the largest oil producers in Nigeria. The company commenced operations in Nigeria in 1955 under the name Mobil Exploration Nigeria Incorporated (MENI).
MPN operates a Joint Venture with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC, 60%; MPN, 40%).
Since 1961, when the company was granted Oil Prospecting License (OPL) offshore present Akwa Ibom State, MPN has made visible contributions to the development of Nigeria’s oil and gas industry. The company and its joint venture partner, NNPC, operate over 90 offshore platforms comprising of about 300 producing wells at a capacity of over 550 thousand barrels a day of crude, condensate and natural gas liquids (NGL).
A series of projects by the joint venture are targeted to increase the current average production level to above one million barrel per day. The East Area Additional Oil Recovery project represents a major investment in a mature operation to extend field life, increase oil recovery and eliminate non-routine gas flaring by injecting produced gas. The East Area project’s 18,000-tonne EAP Gas Compression Facilities platform was set in place at the end of 2005, and set a world record when it was installed in open water using Float-Over Technology. The Natural Gas Liquids (NLG II) project, which has capacity to contribute 45 KBD of natural gas liquids to total production, is an expansion of the NNPC/MPN Joint Venture’s successful Oso-NGL project, and involved the engineering, procurement, construction, start-up and commissioning of an offshore NGL extraction platform, undersea pipeline infrastructure and expansion of the JV’s existing onshore fractionation and storage facilities at Bonny River Terminal.
Esso Exploration and Production Nigeria Limited (EEPNL) was established in 1993 as an affiliate of Exxon Corporation.
The Company was awarded a Production Sharing Contract by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), for Oil Prospecting Lease (OPL) 209 (now OML 133) that same year.
EEPNL is operator of the deepwater oil and gas development named Erha. The field streamed first oil in the first half of 2006.
In December 1999, EEPNL, announced confirmation of the Erha major deepwater oil and gas discovery on OPL Block 209 in 1000 meters water depth. The confirmation well was drilled to a depth of 3,745 meters and flow tested as an oil-bearing reservoir at a test rate of 2,800 barrels per day. In 2000, EEPNL completed development planning for the Erha field development located about 100 kilometers off the coast of Nigeria. The Erha main development has capacity to produce an annual average of 150,000 barrels of oil and process 315 MMSCF of natural gas per day. OML 133 deepwater block is expected to recover about 500 million barrels of oil.
EEPNL has a 56 percent participating interest in the OML 133 contract area, while co-venturer SNEPCO holds the remaining 44 percent share.
In addition to OML 133, another ExxonMobil affiliate owns 20 percent interest in the Bonga development on OML 118 located in greater than 1200 meters water depth. Bonga was discovered in 1996. The initial project is expected to recover 560 million barrels of oil and commenced production of about 200,000 barrels per day from subsea manifolds tied to a FPSO in 2004. The same OML also contains the recently discovered Bonga SW accumulation, which from early interpretations appears to have significant production potential.

The ﬁelds are deltaic shallow marine shelf sands at intermediate depth underlain by substantial aquifers that provide nearly inﬁnite pressure support. The oil is good quality 30° API and typically sells at a marginal premium to Brent.
Shoreline’s OML 30 assets include a 45% interest in 9 flow stations and the segment of the Trans Forcados Pipeline that transports liquids from OML 30 to the Forcados Terminal. The remaining hydrocarbon reserves are estimated to be close to 1 billion bbls making it one of the most valuable onshore blocks in the country.
